We welcome those who have interest in finding a place of ministry within The Wesleyan Church, who agree with us in doctrine and spirit, and believe God is leading them to join hands with us in fulfilling our mission in the world. The academic preparation of transferring ministers will be evaluated as to its equivalency to the course of study prescribed for ministry in The Wesleyan Church, with every effort to recognize the level of service they held in the denomination from which they transferred. Study of denominational history and polity (C35 Wesleyan Church History/Discipline) and Theology (C42 Doctrine of holiness) is required of all transferring ministers who seek ministry in The Wesleyan Church. The Department of Education and the Ministry annually provides a live classroom experience - FLAME - in which these courses are taught. These courses may also be taken through the correspondence courses from our office or at a district extension class offered by your district.
