(Uruguay CNSAM). Two conferences on professor development were held on the North and South Uruguay districts on July 10, 2014 and July 12, 2014, respectively.

On July 12 the second meeting was held in the city of Montevideo with 15 professors present from the South Uruguay District. In both events the National Coordinator of Theological Education by Extension, Prof. Laura Bianchi, was present.
The workshops were presented by the faculty of the Nazarene Theological Seminary of the South Cone: Professor Roberto Sosa, B.A. on-site faculty; Professor Pablo Tello, B.A., coordinator of the Theological Education by Extension for the South Cone and Professor Eduardo Velazquez, Academic Vice-President.
