This past autumn 2015, three focus groups were held with Wesley graduates asking, “How can we be your lifelong learning partner?”
One resounding theme that was gleaned from these meetings was two-fold. Wesley alumni have a desire to
1) Gather informally with other graduates to network and share about their ministries and
2) Continue Learning.
To support these two wishes, this month Wesley is holding four “Wesley Alumni Network Gatherings.” Please choose one that is of most interest or closest to you and we look forward to bringing Wesley to you in your region! Please mark your calendars now and look for an email on March 2 with further details and registration information.
