Alumni Council

The Wesley Theological Seminary Alumni Council is the formal organization that serves as the liaison between Wesley Theological Seminary and all the Seminary’s Graduate and Non-Graduate Alumni.

The Alumni Council serves a fivefold purpose to encourage and sustain relationships among Alumni of the Seminary; to foster a relationship between Alumni and the Seminary in order to assist the Seminary in fulfilling its mission; to function as a resource, evaluation, and advisory workgroup for the Seminary; to enhance the ministry of Alumni; and to encourage former students to support the Seminary spiritually and financially.

Society of John Wesley

“To unite the pair so long disjoined—knowledge and vital piety”

These words penned by Charles Wesley are etched on the cornerstone of Wesley’s library and capture the supreme task of religious institutions. This is especially the task of Wesley Theological Seminary and it is accomplished to some degree in every graduate. On occasion, the Holy Spirit empowers certain persons to embody these qualities in a unique way. Through sacrificial leadership in ministry, these persons exemplify a high standard of involvement in the ministry and mission of the church and in the life of the Wesley community. For those who have meant so much to Wesley and the church, the Society of John Wesley was founded and we honor these most deserving graduates with the Society of John Wesley Award of Merit.

Each year, the Society of John Wesley Award of Merit is given to Wesley graduates who exemplify a high standard of commitment and devotion to God, to the church and to Wesley Theological Seminary.

Take a look at previous award recipients or nominate a graduate for 2014.
