Find the time to read, reflect, research, or just relax with Study Leave for Ministry Professionals. During this special, extended Post-Christmas Renewal Session of Study Leave, participants spend seven days immersed in learning and renewal through self-directed study, worship and prayer on the Duke University campus. This flexible program is designed for Christian institutional leaders, pastors, program staff, and laity, and can cost as little as $300. You select the study topic. We provide all the resources you'll need to make your week as productive as possible.

While at Duke, you may choose to:

  • Audit Divinity School classes
  • Meet with Divinity School faculty as appropriate to your topic of study
  • Participate in community worship and lectures

Tuition for churches eligible for Duke Endowment grants and certain other individuals is $300 (a $600 discount) and includes:

  • Six nights of accommodations
  • Access to classes, libraries and the campus gym
  • A meal allowance
  • Campus parking
  • Continuing education credit unit opportunities

Unlike traditional continuing education events that offer a specific course of study, Study Leave allows each participant to propose a study topic during registration. Previous participants have studied such topics as church history, Christian tradition, Scripture, worship, ethics and preaching.
