Intro to the Duke Divinity Study on Caring for Clergy

Click HERE to view the webinar

As part of the network that supports clergy, we are pleased to invite you to contribute to the work that Dr. Austin and his colleagues at the Ormond Center at Duke Divinity School are doing, as we believe it has the power to inform the work we do in lifelong learning. 

I believe that this study and its future findings might serve as an evidenced-based tool for us as we work with and for the clergy. You can learn more about the project at the study website, by watching this 2.5 min overview, or this webinar to our members. 

The request is simple. Will you complete a 20-minute survey to share about your work? Please click here

Who is ALLLM?


We are a network of theological educators, program directors, consultants, program designers and brokers, and advocates of continuing education for ministry, who gather annually to explore the needs of the ecumenical church and trends in continuing education. We specialize in providing non-degree educational opportunities for church leaders (clergy and lay). Our annual conferences and periodic newletters provide an opportunity for us to network, learn from and support each other's ministry, and sharpen our sense of what the church needs from its leaders so that we can help strengthen those skills in our own varied contexts.

ALLLM is a Related Learning Organization with the Religious Education Association (REA), and we now meet annually in conjunction with them.

During 2020, we're engaged in a research project to canvas the state of Continuting Education for church leaders, and identify needs, hopes and dreams. Continuing education is becoming a more important factor in the standards of the Association of Theological Schools, and this will have a significant impact on the type and quality of programming that many institutions will be expected to offer.
