All Licensed and Ordained Ministers in the Pacific Southwest Region are required to meet the minimum standard of 1.5 CEUs (Continuing Education Units) per year to maintain standing in the PSWR, effective January 1, 2006. 1.5 CEUs equals 15 hours of instructional time.   

Ministers can earn CEUs by attending either Regionally sponsored and other religious/spiritual educational opportunities not sponsored by the PSWR. 

To apply for CEU credit for Regionally sponsored events, a CEU credit form will be provided for you at the event and will be stamped by event leaders at the end of the event. The minister is then required to submit this stamped form to the Regional Office for the credit to be applied to their ministerial profile. Submit the form and documentation via email to support@disciplespswr.org or a copy mailed to the Regional Office. Be sure to keep a copy for your records.

To apply for CEU credit for events not sponsored by the PSWR, download and print the PSWR CEU Form. Complete the form and attach proper proof that you completed the instructional hours. Submit the form and documentation via email to support@disciplespswr.org or a copy mailed to the Regional Office. Be sure to keep a copy for your records.

Upcoming CEU opportunities will often be shared via PSWR E-Shout. Use the form below to sign up to receive these emails. Please scroll down below for a list of upcoming CEU opportunities. You can also check the PSWR Regional Calendar and the Regional Blog for information on upcoming events.

Do you find you sometimes overreact and have no idea why? Then, to make matters worse, you beat yourself up for losing your cool? The Compassion Practice fosters a detached self-awareness fundamental to experiencing nonreactive, nonjudgmental openness to our own fears, longings, wounds and frustrations that block the flow of authentic compassion for ourselves and others. Come learn this contemplative approach to cultivating compassion directly from the author, Frank Rogers, Jr.

Featuring Franks Rogers, Jr., Ph.D. Author of Practicing Compassion and Compassion in Practice—The Way of Jesus, and Co-Director/Founder of The Center for Engaged Compassion. Suggested Donation of $20 (includes lunch). Pre-register at www.belovedsandiego.org/event-registration

REVIVE CONFERENCE
Up to 1.5 CEUs

February 22-25, 2018
Missiongathering, 3090 Polk Avenue, San Diego, CA 92014

The Revive Conference is a progressive, inclusive, missional church conference dedicated to equipping and empowering pastors, church planters, and lay people alike to join with the Spirit in the renewal of the church. We believe that the local church is called to be a hub of justice, social transformation, and spiritual nourishment, drawing people from diverse sexualities, gender identities, and ethnicities together to follow in the way of Jesus. The Revive Conference brings together leading pastors, activists, and theologians to offer practical direction and encouragement to individuals and communities seeking to lean in to the new thing God is doing both in and through the church. 

If you're someone who still believes the church is called to be the vehicle of transformation and renewal in your neighborhood, Revive is the conference for you. This conference will also feature Co-Regional Minister Don Dewey as a workshop presenter. Learn more at missiongathering.com/revive. Register here.
