To commemorate its Centennial, Candler is hosting two major events during the 2014-2015 academic year: A Fall Celebration that is commemorative and focuses on story, memory and celebration, and a Spring Academic Conference that emphasizes prophecy in the sense of speaking a word that challenges the world - and examines the 21st century's dire dilemmas and wondrous opportunities, providing a distinctive Candler vision of how to approach them.
For 100 years, Candler School of Theology has been dedicated to preparing great preachers for ministry in local congregations. The opening of the Wesley Teaching Chapel earlier this month demonstrates that ongoing commitment by moving preaching practice out of the classroom and into a space designed for worship.
