The Course of Study in El Salvador

The Course of Study in El Salvador is intended to establish a more regular theological education for the Methodist Church in Central America.

The three-year Spanish-language program is designed to prepare men and women who wish to study Wesleyan theology, but are unable to attend a seminary. The course offers students the opportunity to explore theological study in a general way or through theological reflection on a specific theme for the purpose of enriching their Christian service as lay ministers and pastors in their own Methodist Churches in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador.

The program is also suitable for anyone seeking advanced training in Christian education or ordination into the Christian ministry. This is an intensive program and certain classes are required. Twice each year a group of teachers travels to El Salvador for one week in the winter and the spring. Teachers and students have enriched testimonies from this unique experience.

This program is possible thanks to the coordinated work of the Hispanic House of Studies, the Methodist Church in El Salvador, The General Board of Higher Education of the United Methodist Church, and The General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church.
