Regarding the funding of Continuing Education, below is the statement from the Clergy Study Team's Report:

V. FUNDING FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION AND SPIRITUAL FORMATION

While some seminars and other programs of study can be expensive, this must be weighed against the absolutely critical task of maintaining faithfulness, effectiveness and fruitfulness in one's ministry.  Continuing education funding through the Board of Ordained Ministry is available (up to $1,200 per quadrennium) for every clergyperson.  Clergy are also encouraged to view a portion of their accountable reimbursement amount as available for continuing education and spiritual formation.  In addition, the S/PPRC must prioritize the designation of church funding for such purposes in consultation with its clergyperson(s) and the District Superintendent.
