Licensing School

The Office of Methodist Studies partners with annual conferences across the country to provide one educational program for the licensing of all certified candidates for ministry. The Division of Ordained Ministry, an entity of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, dictates the curriculum for licensing by providing guidelines based on competence in skills of ministry. For further information, contact Amy Walker via email at or call 404.727.4587.
