Alumni are a treasured part of the life, history and future of ATS. We hope that alumni check back often to stay in touch, to make note of future ATS events, and to share input with current and future students.

We know that learning is best integrated when your context provides a "real life" lab where application can occur. We invite you to continue your professional education with Ashland. Alumni of all Ashland Theological Seminary Master's and Doctoral degree programs are welcome to enjoy one free audited class per year at any of our teaching centers. To participate in an upcoming class simply download a registration form and return it to Lori Lower at the Seminary indicating you are alumni interested in your free audit. Pending approval by the faculty, you will be registered for the class. See what classes are coming up by reviewing the Course Schedules section of the website.

Wesley Book Study

The Wesley Book Study is representative of a partnership between Ashland Theological Seminary (ATS) and the East Ohio Conference, The United Methodist Church (EOC-UMC). It is sponsored by the Racial-Ethnic Ministries Division of the EOC Connectional Ministries. The administrators of the project are Paul Chilcote, PhD, Dean of ATS and Gloria Brown, PhD, Director of Racial-Ethnic Ministries for the EOC-UMC. United Methodists from across the North Central Jurisdiction are invited to immerse themselves as leaders and participants in serious examination of the lives and works of John and Charles Wesley. This will be accomplished via a book study with the primary resource being, Chilcote, 2011 (See reference). Dr. Chilcote is an expert on “all things” Wesley.

An orientation session will be held (required for leaders, optional for participants) on September 18, 7:00-9:00 PM, Ashland University, 6500 Rockside Road, Independence, OH 44131-2319. Face-to-face participation in this session is encouraged; however, a recorded version of the orientation will be available for those who are unable to attend the live session.

The project will begin on October 1, 2014 and end with a retreat on the Ashland campus in April, 2015. Study sessions may be held online (Angel hosted by Ashland) or face-to-face. Whether groups meet online or face-to-face, all are required to register online. Registration opens September 15. Those completing the book study will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as follows: Leaders 5 CEUs, Participants 4 CEUs

Although this project is sponsored by Racial-Ethnic Ministries, all are welcome to participate.
