What can we learn from John Wesley and early Methodism that will help us in this pandemic? Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, May 5, and learn how our Methodist roots teach us the importance of ministering to the whole person … attending to the health of the body as well as the soul.
Ministering to the Whole Person: Wesleyan Precedents to Ministry in a Pandemic
Presented by the Center for Leadership Excellence
with Randy Maddox
Tuesday, May 5, 1pm EST
(should last no longer than one hour)
About the Webinar:
One of John Wesley’s most central (but often least known) concerns was that his Methodist people attend to the health of the body as well as the soul – both for themselves and in the ministry to others. This webinar will remind us of these precedents in Wesley and early Methodism, and probe some implications for the ministry situation we face today.
