Sean Devolites has a strong desire to serve God in whatever capacity he is called to pursue. “My desire to learn more about my faith and God, as well as my desire to share this faith as much as possible through my actions and relationships, has led me to seminary.  I'm not quite sure where I want to work yet, but I know that I want to be able to serve God wherever it is I go,” Sean said.

Originally from Northern Virginia, Sean is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity Degree at Wesley and is the recipient of a Bishop’s Scholarship. “The scholarship has impacted my ability to do graduate work simply because it has meant that I could afford to do it. Being one year removed from college I didn't have much money in savings, and the scholarship has meant that I am able to continue to pursue my studies here at Wesley. I had thought a lot about entering seminary since my senior year of high school, but wanted to wait until after college to do so. I took an extra year after college to consider where I felt led. I applied to Wesley in the spring and was blown away by how quickly, positively, and fervently the seminary responded to my application. I felt that Wesley wanted me and wanted to establish a relationship with me on a personal level, rather than just as another student,” Sean said.

Sean received a B.A. in History with certification to teach Social Studies from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He hopes to use his teaching background in his future endeavors. “I want to be able to teach the things I'm now learning in some way, and want to use education to help as many people as possible, especially youth.  I want to work with and help as many people as possible in whatever means I'm led to, and to do so by establishing relationships with people and being consistent in that effort,” Sean said.
