Wesley welcomes and appreciates the dynamic support of PMM sites in training ministers through partnership with its contextual education programs. Last year, Wesley's PMM students enjoyed the partnership of 150 unique placement sites for students in building their sense and capacity for ministry. We invite your church, agency, healthcare institution, etc., to join Wesley Theological Seminary in the mission of preparing the next generation of pastoral leaders for the church and world.
The opportunity to share is a distinct call to partner with us in creating your ministry setting as a true "classroom" for ministerial education, partnering with a Wesley student as she/he answers the call of God for service in the Church.
Our God expects much from us in living and proclaiming the Gospel in diverse contexts and ways. So too, Wesley asks a lot from the Learning Partners who mentor students in their journey. Read further below on how your church or agency might be able to host a Wesley Student.
We invite you to read the Attributes of a Teaching Setting, which will provide you with a clear summary of what is sought in a teaching setting and also read our Values for contextual education to gain insight of how our important our partnership is with one another as we prepare our students in their ministerial and spiritual formation.
The PMM Ministry Setting and Intern Handbook will give you further insight about our program. If you wish to participate, please complete a Profile Application and return to the PMM Office.
*NOTE: Students may not be placed in their home churches/agencies unless they are employed there.

The Student Pastor Program Handbook outlines the Student Pastor Program (SPP), which is designed for those students already serving a pastorate in a local church and admitted into the SPP at the time of their admission to the Seminary.
The Learning Partner Evaluation Form is to be completed by all members of a Learning Team at the end of each academic year.
