The educational preparation required of all Nazarene ministers is called the Course of Study. A Course of Study curriculum is a curriculum designed to develop the range of abilities needed for effective ministry. A curriculum that has been approved by the General Board and Board of General Superintendents is a validated Course of Study program. Those preparing for ministry must complete a validated Course of Study program and must adhere to the specific guidelines of the region on which they hold membership in the Church of the Nazarene.
The following rosters of validated Course of Study programs are provided to assist District Board of Ministry leaders in giving guidance to individuals seeking to complete the educational requirements for ministerial licensing and ordination in the Church of the Nazarene.
