Advanced Course of Study School


NOTICE - April 17, 2018

After months of both research and discernment, and with the support of GBHEM and the Candler School of Theology, the Emory Course of Study School has decided to suspend our Advanced Course of Study School.

We are thrilled that so many of our students have graduated in the past few years, but unfortunately, our admission rate has not kept up with our graduation rate. As you might imagine, this creates a financially untenable situation for both the COS school and Candler. For now, we are in the process of assisting our remaining students to find classes elsewhere that fulfill their education requirements for ordination.

We are incredibly proud of the courses we have offered in our ACOS school over the years and even more proud of the graduates we have produced, but closing our ACOS school is the best stewardship of the school’s resources at this time. We welcome all questions and concerns during this transition.

"As pastors, there are few opportunities for us to worship without leading. This may be the best part of COS--there is good music, good preaching, and a place to receive amazing grace. Don't miss the opportunity to re-fill your Spiritual tank."
-Ann Hatcher, Tennessee Conference
