he Claremont School of Theology Center for Global Methodism was launched in cooperation with the California-Pacific Annual Conference to help make the School a leading presence in research, teaching, and the formation of leaders in Methodist traditions from around the globe. Led by Rev. Dr. Karen Dalton, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Ministry Studies, and Rev. Dr. Jack Jackson, E. Stanley Jones Associate Professor of Evangelism and Mission, the Center’s emphasis at present is on providing education and formation opportunities for Methodist students.  Regular programs are offered including educational forums and information sessions related to candidacy for ministry. Resources for spiritual support and vocational discernment are being developed and made available. In these ways the Center offers a home and formative influences for students from across the range of Methodist and Wesleyan traditions, including but not limited to candidates for ordination in the United Methodist Church and Korean Methodist Church. As our school welcomes increased diversity from within and beyond the Christian traditions, students need a context for learning about and being strengthened in their particular traditions.
