The Wesleyan Theological society (WTS) is a scholarly society that exists to encourage the exchange of ideas among Wesleyan-Holiness theologians. We hold a yearly academic conference devoted to the topics of systematic theology, biblical studies, philosophy, missions, historical studies, and pastoral theology. In addition, the society publishes a scholarly journal twice a year, and stimulates scholarship among younger theologians, pastors, and inquiring laity who are invited to participate in the society’s meetings and activities and publish in the journal.
Our website has information on our yearly meeting, membership, our journal, and links to websites from other societies and partners doing work in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition.
Please take a few minutes to look around the website and consider becoming a member—we would be pleased to have you join us.
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; stimulates scholarship among younger theologians, pastors, and inquiring laity; and 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.
