Methodist Doctrine

These courses are more academic than other Wesley Ministry Network courses because they are intended for the training of clergy and other church leaders. These courses are suitable for any group that wants to look in-depth at Methodist history, doctrine, and evangelism. There is a lay education version that condenses the content into lessons that foster conversation and spiritual growth for lay groups.
