Whether you are an individual seeking to learn more or a leader of adult or youth Christian education, the Episcopal Church in East Tennessee continues to support your efforts. We partner with educational organizations/institutions to bring you valuable, accessible content for Christian learning.
While the toll of the pandemic, adaptation, recovery, and other environmental challenges have worn at our capacity to absorb new information and ideas, your diocesan leadership is determined to continue offering resources for continual Christian learning and ministry formation. We continue to see greater interest in on-line offerings and wish to commend some to you now.

Through a partnership with ChurchNext, the Episcopal Church in East Tennessee is making a vast library of video courses available to individuals and groups. This content is not limited by schedules. You may choose the course you desire and either participate individually or facilitate a group using the accompanying guides. This resource not only fits your schedule and topical interests, but for now your access is Free because of our diocesan subscription.
