NATIONAL CONSULTATION ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR THE MINISTRY (2D, UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO, JUNE 8-12, 1965).
AMONG THE POINTS OF CONSENSUS EMERGING FROM THE SECOND CONSULTATION ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MINISTERS WAS THE DECISION THAT FINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR EDUCATION PROGRAMING RESTS WITHIN DENOMINATIONS, ALTHOUGH ECUMENICAL AID MAY STIMULATE IT. CENTRAL COORDINATION OF EDUCATIONAL EFFORTS BY COOPERATING DENOMINATIONS IS DESIRABLE, BUT CENTRAL ADMINISTRATION, WHICH MIGHT STIFLE THE CREATIVE TENSION AMONG THEM, IS NOT. COUNSELING SERVICES WILL BE ESSENTIAL IF MINISTERS ARE TO BUILD SYSTEMATIC PROGRAMS OF SELF-DEVELOPMENT. THERE WAS NO CLEAR AGREEMENT ON THE PROBLEMS OF--(1) RELATING CONTENT OF CONTINUING EDUCATION TO THE PERFORMANCE OF MINISTERIAL FUNCTION, (2) FINANCING A NATIONAL PROGRAM OF INDIVIDUALIZED STUDY, (3) MOTIVATION, INCLUDING RECONCILING INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL REWARDS OF CONTINUING EDUCATION, AND (4) EDUCATING EDUCATORS TO GUIDE THE PROGRAMS. THE APPENDIX CONTAINS RESOURCE PAPERS ON THE OBJECTIVES OF CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR MINISTERS ON THE LAND-GRANT CAMPUS AND IN GENERAL, LONG-RANGE ECUMENICAL PLANS, A PROPOSAL FOR AN AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PARISH CLERGY, A STUDY OF THE RESULTS OF A PROGRAM OF CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR PROTESTANT CLERGY, AND THE MOTIVATION, CURRICULUM, THEORY AND METHOD, AND EVALUATION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR PASTORS. (THE CONSULTATION WAS HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO CENTER FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION, JUNE 8-12, 1965.) (AJ)
