GBHEM Higher Education Night at GC2012

Higher Education Night with The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church celebrating all the diversity and goodness of GBHEM and the United Methodist Church. http://www.gbhem.org

“A passion for excellence in higher education and in ministry has always been a part of our Wesleyan heritage. Since its earliest days, our church has attempted to provide training and support for those who are called into professional ministry and to provide access to church-related higher education to all who desire it. It operates on behalf of The United Methodist Church to prepare and assist those whose ministry in Christ is exercised through ordination or the diaconate and to provide general oversight and care for United Methodist institutions of higher education.

In response to the gospel’s commission to “go ye therefore and teach,” American Methodism has founded more than 1,200 institutions of higher education, among them some of the country’s great colleges, universities, and theological seminaries.”
