The winter months ahead offer opportunities to learn and grow through virtual events.

As we socially distance at home, exploring the Mercer School can expand your knowledge through classes, events and the Mercer School's Library collection.

The new catalog of Spring courses for the Mercer School for Ministry is now available. These courses are designed for both interested lay students and those preparing for ordination.

Registration can be completed by linking to the registration page at the end of each course description.

Once you are registered, if you are a lay learner, you can find the recommended book list for your course in the "School for Ministry" tab under Booklists.

Students preparing for ordination should contact the Mercer Office for information on books.
