Wesleyan Theological Society

Welcome to the Wesleyan Theological Society website. We hope that you will find this a helpful resource in your Wesleyan research and study.

 What is this Organization

 The Wesleyan Theological Society is a growing group of scholars who have joined together for several reasons. The society...     

  •  seeks to encourage the exchange of ideas among Wesleyan-Holiness theologians
  • acts as a source of ideas and essays for Christian Holiness Partnership seminars
  • stimulates scholarship among younger theologians, pastors, and inquiring laity
  • publishes a scholarly journal twice a year 


The Wesleyan Theological Society meets together for an academic conference each year, typically the first full weekend in March.  This annual meeting is a well-attended forum intended to give members an opportunity to share Wesleyan scholarship with others.  Sessions may be devoted to topics such as biblical studies, missions, philosophy, pastoral theology, psychology, cultural studies, and systematic theology, among other topics.

The Wesleyan Theological Society is a membership-based organization. Information on becoming or renewing membership is available on this website (see tab to the left). Memberships expire on January 1 of each year and should be renewed by sending dues to Sam Powell at the address noted on the application form.
