Licensing School (In Spanish)

The Hispanic/Latin@ Ministries Program offers Licensing School in Spanish. Persons not ordained as elders who are appointed [or expect to receive an appointment] to preach, and conduct divine worship and perform the duties of a pastor, shall have a license for pastoral ministry (The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, 2016, ¶315). 

The Licensing School is for certified candidates who have completed:

  • the Inquiring, Exploring, Declared candidacy process, and
  • have written permission from their district superintendent. 

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary will offer Spanish-language Licensing School in 2020. For more information, and to register, please go to: https://www.garrett.edu/umc-course-study/escuela-de-licencia-licensing-school-spanish
