"This degree focuses on the early Wesleyan tradition with the aim of equipping contemporary lay and clergy leaders for engagement in movements that advance the New Awakening and the NextChurch. Reaching marginalized people, renewing the church, and reforming the nation were at the heart of the Wesleys’ mission. This degree seeks to make them central for Christian living today."
Our Wesley Studies Track is anchored in the Oxford-style tutorial course entitled, Progressive Wesleyan Theology.
The course explores a progressive Wesleyan theology as an “order of salvation,” which is rooted in the Trinity, and expressed as a theology of love, a journey of grace, and a formation in personal and social holiness. The justice message and mission of Wesleyan theology is a major emphasis of this course and the entire degree track.

A short guide for helping students cite works by John Wesley
Among his many writings, John Wesley edited and abridged a number of devotional classics and republished them in what he called A Christian Library. These "Extracts from and Abridgments of the Choicest Pieces of Practical Divinity Which Have Been Published in the English Tongue," as Wesley subtitled them, were first published in 50 volumes in 1750. The present digital collection was scanned from the 1821 edition of these classics, published in 30 volumes.
