Wesley’s Doctor of Ministry program for chaplains was developed following the events of 9/11 as the seminary committed to serving U.S. military chaplains in new and deeper ways.
This annual conference offering will directly support scholarships for the Military Chaplain Doctor of Ministry Program at Wesley Theological Seminary. US Military Chaplains from all participating branches receive 100% tuition scholarships. These Chaplains minister to and impact the lives of military members and their families all across the world.
