Rep. Edward Whitfield (R-KY) invites the public to join him as he welcomes President David McAllister-Wilson of Wesley Theological Seminary for a noontime discussion at the intersection of public service and theology on June 12, 2012 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the U.S. Capitol Visitor’s Center, Room HVC-200.
The event will provide potential students the opportunity to learn about the new Master of Arts program at Wesley during a brief presentation, and to network with faculty, Wesley staff and current and former students of the seminary. A catered lunch will be provided for attendees.
The innovative Master of Arts program at Wesley is designed to allow students to engage in a class or two, or to self-design a course of study around their personal goals and professional interests. The program is perfect for those seeking to deepen their spiritual life and to examine the texts and traditions of Christianity, and for those seeking to add a theological dimension to the work they do in the world.
“My studies have made me more committed to reflecting my own faith in those things I do to change the course of our nation. Wesley is where faith, public affairs, and action come together as one,” said Mike McCurry, former White House Press Secretary and current partner at Public Strategies Washington, Inc. “At Wesley Theological Seminary, you can dig deeper into what it means to be a Christian while attempting to serve the public good.”
“I deepened my understanding of faith traditions outside of my own, experienced enriching cultural diversities, and strengthened my own resolve about how I live and work fruitfully in the realms of civic engagement and social action,” said Leah Daughtry, CEO of the 2008 DNC and current pastor of The House of the Lord Church in Washington, D.C.
