As approved seminaries of the United Methodist Church, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and Luther Seminary provide students deeper formation for denominational leadership (as well as service in other Methodist traditions, such as the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church) through a shared program of educational offerings. United is also the home of the United Methodist Center, which hosts regular events and conversations.
For students who are seeking ordination, there may be additional requirements you need to fulfill. Please contact your conference office.
With the Methodist Studies concentration, students will dive into the distinctive marks of the Wesleyan theological tradition and the historical narrative of the Methodist movement, learn to lead worship and preach in ways that are grounded in Wesleyan theology and spiritual formation, and express the Good News of Jesus Christ to individuals outside the church.
This concentration is available for the M.Div. degree.
