New England Satellite School

The goal of the New England Satellite School for the Course of Study is bring the required Course of Study program of the United Methodist Church closed to those who need it.  Wesley Theological Seminary is the Regional School for the North East Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church.  This area is large and many local pastors in rural areas in the upper reaches of Maine and New Hampshire are not able to make the trip to Washington, D.C.. in July for our on-campus experience.  We created this school to ensure that  local pastors in this area would be able to fulfill their educational requirements as layed out in the Book of Discipline (2012).

We will hold two sessions each year Fall and Spring.  Details including study guide information, book lists and location are below. Click on the course name to download the pre-work assignment.

Questions should be directed to Sara Sheppard, Managing Director, Course of Study
