KAIROS Continuing Education

Continuing education in the ELCA is intended to equip those in leadership roles so that the whole body of Christ may better carry out God's mission.

The ELCA expects a minimum of 50 contact hours annually in continuing education. A contact hour is defined as a typical 50-minute classroom instruction session or the equivalent.

Clergy and rostered lay leaders are to work with their staff support committee annually in planning, reviewing and recording their continuing education activities and hours. These continuing education endeavors are also to be reported annually to the synodical bishop.
