The Theology of John Wesley: Online Course, Donations to Benefit Disability Ministries of the UMC

The course is free, but in exchange, please consider making a donation to the Disability Ministries Committee of the United Methodist Church (Advance #3021054)

Introduction:

My name is Rev. Rebecca L. Holland. I am an author and ordained elder serving in the Susquehanna Conference of the UMC. Recently, I was honored to be asked to serve as the chair of communications for Disability Ministries of the United Methodist Church. I also chair my own conference’s disability task force.

Last month, my District Superintendent asked if I would teach a course in Wesleyan theology to students who are pursuing ordination. Instead of asking for payment, I had the idea of requesting for donations to be made to Disability Ministries.

I have joined forces with a wise friend of mine, Rev. Charles Baughman, and we are excited to offer this course together. Charles has a passion for sacramental theology and over fifty years of experience in congregational ministry.

I hope that you will consider joining us on this journey of learning!
