“We are on the cusp of a new day for the future of the Wesleyan network of families across the world,” Abraham said regarding the creation of The Wesley House of Studies at Truett Seminary and his appointment to serve as its founding director. “In order to fulfill the promise in store for us, we urgently need fresh ways of providing the spiritual, practical and intellectual resources that are essential for the work up ahead.
“Baylor University is a world-class institution, and the creation of a Wesley House of Studies at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary is a landmark development,” he said. “I can think of no better place to be home to a vibrant Wesley House. I am thrilled to play my part in making it a stellar center of excellence that the Holy Spirit can use for reform, renewal and awakening on a global scale.”

Thank you for this good news. I hope the Bishop of the Texas Conference read this. In His Service ,✝️
I have a suggestion for the new church to train local pastors. We have a lot of elders with PhD’s and advanced studies. There should be a standard curriculum for all local pastors that could be taught one course locally. A weekly two hour meeting to discuss assignments and topics with a district mentor would be far better than our current system, which causes many good candidates to turn away. Even the weekend classes are rough on pastors with families, a church, and many times a full time job. The curriculum for seminary needs to be improved also. I can’t tell you how many times in a mentor meeting we are discussing a COS class and hear the elders exclaim they never had anything like that in seminary.
