Fall 2019 License to Preach

Friday, August 23- Saturday, November 16, 2019

The License to Preach school enables candidates to complete training when their primary vocation makes it difficult to attend a residential school.  The school provides the required contact hours of learning at times that are possible for such persons to participate. 

Admission Requirements
The Division of Ordained Ministry (Nashville, TN) requires that before acceptance in a licensing school, a person must have been certified as a candidate for licensed and/or ordained ministry.  For certification information contact your Conference Superintendent and/or chair of District Committee on Ministry (dCOM).

You will need access to a computer with internet that will allow listening to lectures, submitting written and visual presentations and chatting online with other class members.  The first and last sessions are face-to-face; all others are online.
