in mission together
Whenever disasters strike, United Methodists respond with the knowledge that Disaster Response and Recovery is a vital part of our church mission. We travel to each other’s conference and all over the world as the hands and feet of Christ to bring God’s love to those in need.
All students who are certified candidates within the United Methodist Church are welcomed to the Western Jurisdiction Licensing School. We believe that all students can do well in this program.
This program provides 80 hours of education to prepare students to become licensed by their Bishop as a Local Pastor. The areas for study are worship, preaching, administration, spiritual formation, mission, evangelism, pastoral care, educational ministries, and United Methodist tradition.
