Theological Education

Chairperson: Rev. Dr. Paul Swarup (Church of North India)

The Theological Education Committee focuses on training for ministry based on basic Christian beliefs and distinctive emphases from the Wesleyan tradition. There is also consideration of global awareness and lifting expectations for theological institutions, educators, curriculum and students.  An opportunity exists to expand this knowledge in developing a global outlook, to be flexible, adaptable, open and able to cross cultural boundaries with a degree of confidence and ease.  We seek to provide a vision, awareness, and commitment to ministry in a global setting, and to offer encouragement.
