We wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our College
staff! God has blessed us in many ways, and His greatest blessing was the gift of His
Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!


We are now registering for the spring semester to begin January 4th. Flex
scheduling options are available upon request. The Conference Course of Study Program is
being upgraded and enhanced with an instructor assigned to work with each
individual student. We presently have 9 ministers enrolled in the program under the
banner of the Wesley Institute.

The Lynn Corbett Library has a new home! The General Conference Board of Administration
has made space available in the Foundry Press building, 425 Broughton St. The
upstairs is being set up as the Methodist Room & Denominational Archives, a
classroom/conference room, a Library office, and storage. We hope to have phase one
complete shortly. In phase two, a downstairs storage room behind Foundry Press will
house the collection of books to support our curriculum.

A new “Zoom” room has been set up in Adden Hall. This room will provide facilities for
small conference meetings and for student use to meet and interact with instructors.
After a one year absence, the Annual Fellowship Dinner will return on Tuesday
evening, February 15th, at Antley’s BBQ Restaurant. Please save the date!


We are grateful for the 19 college students and 9 continuing education
students that we are working with this semester and are working hard to
register additional students. We are busy doing the work God called us to.
Our private scholarship fund has grown to the point that we will be able to offer
scholarship assistance this year to all students who apply for it. Praise the Lord!
We are thankful to God and to His people for prayers and gifts to pay our salaries
and operating expenses.
