Nazarene Education

Christian education is that ministry of the Church by which it seeks to communicate its faith and nurture Christlike disciples. In the Church of the Nazarene, the ministry of Christian education is expressed through local church education and Nazarene higher education,  including clergy education.

The International Board of Education (IBOE) serves the Church of the Nazarene system of higher education in advocacy, support, evaluation and networking. This system of schools includes 52 colleges, universities, and seminaries and is resolute in shaping Christlike disciples and servant-leaders for lifelong service and global impact.

The schools are located in 35 countries on six continents and serve a richly diverse student body offering phenomenal opportunities for  the nearly 50,000 students who annually make Nazarene institutions their schools of choice.
