The Mission of the Wesleyan Seminary of Venezuela is to train Venezuelan nationals to reach the lost in Venezuela for Christ.
The vision is to provide a high quality, five year undergraduate degree seminary program in order to train Venezuelan nationals to be effective mission oriented pastors.
Our goal was to see the first class graduate in August of 2008 and to enroll the first boarding class in 2009. By the grace of God these goals have been met.
The overarching goal is to train Venezuelan pastors to be effective mission ministers able to pastor a primary church and to plant additional congregations and social missions for the purpose of reaching the lost of Venezuela.
The Seminary is an independent theological school, but operates as the official seminary of the UMC de Venezuela. The faculty and staff serves as mentors and consultants to the Bishop and pastors and congregations in the UMC. The seminary also hosts, at no cost to the Conference, the Annual Conference of the Methodist Church.

We need help. Any help will be appreciated. Lots of help will be more appreciated. However, we can say beyond fear of contradiction, one of the greatest places for optimal return on investment of your mission lives and dollars will be in the work in Venezuela. God is doing marvelous things across the world. We have been called to engage in the work God is doing in Venezuela and to build partnerships between the church in the US and Venezuela. We simply ask for your help.
