Continuing Education for Ministry: Personnel, Participation, and Evaluation.
Gamble, Connolly C. Jr.
This 1968 national survey on ministerial continuing education dealt with educational leadership in the United States, analyzed participation, and assembled information on evaluation. Of the 766 organizations contacted, 299 (39%) responded. Educators were asked about role concepts, years of service, training and prior experience, proportion of time devoted to continuing education, numbers of persons devoting major time to ministerial continuing education, chief problems, and their own continuing education. Fiscal policies, criteria for selecting participants and developing programs, provisions for educational counseling, denominational strategies, and extradenominational participation were investigated. Data on participation by clergy and laity in nonresidential, residential, and correspondence study were tabulated for action training centers, clinical pastoral education centers, councils of churches, seminaries, universities and colleges, denominational agencies, specialized continuing education agencies, and miscellaneous agencies. Respondents also indicated specific objectives, evaluation techniques, personal preferences among programs, programs with the most educational value, popular types of programs, and lessons gained from experience.
