There is a broad mainstream of Christian theology out there. But there’s a shortage of high-quality educational materials that make those ideas accessible to adult laypeople. The Wesley Theological Seminary Lay Academy fills this gap, bringing the teaching of the world’s best theologians right to you.
The Wesley Theological Seminary Lay Academy — created in partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. — has created courses and educational materials that are theologically rich and deep. The program is based on one core idea: that churches thrive when they are connected to a strong seminary, and seminaries are strong when they are affiliated with vital congregations. Its vision is to be a leading resource for the education of the whole church in the whole world. BeADisciple is pleased to be partnering with the Wesley Theological Seminary Lay Academy to bring the great courses they provide into an online setting.
