Now Enrolling: Exploring Wesleyan Theology

Enrollment is open now for the first two certificate courses, Exploring Wesleyan Theology 1 and Exploring Wesleyan Theology 2, taught by Dr. Cliff Sanders. Dr. Sanders is a field expert and ordained minister for more than 43 years. He currently serves as Chair and Professor for MACU’s School of Ministry.

These two courses will cover a variety of theological topics including:

  • An investigation into the nature of God and how your view of God affects everything in your life and in your human relationships

A $100 scholarship for each course is available for qualified participants. For the first 25 participants, you will also receive Dr. Sanders’ books shipped to you for free. If you register for two or more courses at a time, you will see even further savings!
