About Parish Christian Educator School (PCE)
The Parish Christian Educator (PCE) School is a three-year educational experience for United Methodists in local church Christian education service, both volunteer and salaried. The school consists of a series of six courses focusing on essential aspects of Christian education in the local church. Participants may take one or all six courses. Each course includes selected reading assignments, writing and in-class participation. Completion of all six will entitle a United Methodist to carry the conference approved title of Parish Christian Educator. United Methodist membership at the time of commissioning is required. In order to receive credit, participant must be present for the whole course.

Next Session: TBD

When: Jan 2020

Due to limited site and leadership availability, agency changes that have impacted our grant that funds this ministry,  and low participation at this time of year, the PCE design team has decided to take a break to re-evaluate and strategize our work and vision for PCE moving forward. Therefore, we will not be offering a June session in 2019.

We know that this is good and important work. Our team is hard at work as we seek to redesign and revitalize this important ministry. This break will give the team the time it needs to continue creating the next phase of this important certification ministry.

Look for updates in the fall about future PCE sessions!
