Anyone in your congregation, whether it be leaders, staff, volunteers, or congregation members can train with CongregationU. You can assign courses to everyone in a certain group or certain people in certain groups. The options are endless!
Our library of courses is always growing. Click here for a list of course options that are available to you.
You can also build your own courses. Tired of paying to reprint handbooks that quickly become outdated? Help reduce paperwork and keep content fresh by putting your information online. As church or organization policies are updated, you can change course information at a moment’s notice. You can train, test, and track employees and volunteers with the easy administrative side of the system.
Your CongregationU training can be taken from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection—online, 24/7. It can be completed at your convenience. The course bookmarks your progress and starts up again where you left off. Progress checks throughout the course test your knowledge as you are going through the course, and the final quiz tests on what you have learned.
When you set up an account, you will receive your access codes. Setting up an account is free and allows you to browse the course library, purchase courses, and give people access so they can login to the online university and train using their own pass codes. We have several tutorials to help you along the way, and are always happy to talk with you by phone.

Depending on your pricing package and the size of your congregation, you can have as many or as few people take the training as you want.
Courses vary in length, about 20-25 minutes in most cases. Other courses are longer depending on the topic. The CongregationU system keeps track of a user’s progress, so he or she doesn’t have to complete a long training course in one session. Some courses have multiple modules, so you can complete modules at your convenience.
The CongregationU system is designed to make learning easy for anyone who wants to learn. Our online training is designed for anyone—from the computer novice to the technology expert. The content is written for the average learner, and the information is not designed to trick or confuse the user. We want your congregations to learn and be engaged in the educational process!
All you need to administer and complete the training is Internet access. There is no software or hardware necessary except a computer, tablet, or mobile device with access to the Internet.
Our classes are designed for one user, not a group. One of the main benefits of online training is that it allows users to complete courses at their own pace, and when it’s convenient. It also allows churches to track test scores and monitor who has taken the course. No more scheduling conflicts or need for babysitting or using valuable building resources when you have to bring people together for group training. Some churches follow up individual training with group discussions, depending on the topic.
Applicants who do not have Internet access via a cell phone, tablet, or home computer can use a computer at a library, a friend’s house, or perhaps one at your church. CongregationU is an online, easy-to-use system that provides fast results.
