Military Chaplains

The next Military Chaplaincy as Call and Practice is projected to begin in May 2015. The schedule will closely follow the current track, below.

Military chaplains are harnessed with the imposing tasks of advisement and support with responsibilities that vary and intensify at each successive level of command. Satisfying the operational needs of military leaders and the religious needs of warriors and their families requires intellectual and spiritual dexterity. This program of study is designed to enhance both. The core courses explore a broad range of topics related both to chaplaincy tasks and to the vocational life of the individual chaplain.

Wesley Theological Seminary is a Yellow Ribbon institution. The seminary has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs to offer up to 20 Yellow Ribbon Scholarships in our doctoral programs this academic year. Prior service, reserve, and active military may qualify for full tuition support on a first-come-first-served basis.
