Collaboration

Wesley Downtown works to engage in strategic partnerships that enable us to advance our research and education activities so that they may better contribute to God's transforming work in the world.  We strive to adhere to a practical theology grounded in scripture, and support staff and students seeking to partner with particular churches, ministries, or other faith-based organizations.

Heal the Sick Program

Through the Heal the Sick program, Wesley prepares clergy and lay leaders to support their congregations in the development of health ministries.  These healing ministries are conceived holistically to include body, mind and soul. We believe that congregations are called to such vital, missional ministries, which include care and support for their members’ overall well-being, as well as care for their neighbors.
