Welcome to Catalyst Online! United Methodist (UM) seminarians have been
receiving Catalyst in their mail boxes since 1973. Since then our aims
have remained constant:
- to alert seminarians
to significant resources within the classical Christian tradition;
- to highlight
evangelical perspectives on Christian faith and practice;
- to stimulate serious
consideration of classical Christianity; and
- to encourage a
seminary experience fully within the Wesleyan tradition of uniting the
two so long divided, knowledge and vital piety
The current issue is volume 39.4, April, 2013:

AFTE is committed to the renewal of United Methodist theological education in
a more evangelical direction. To contribute to this task, AFTE provides the
church with first-rate scholars trained in the classical Wesleyan tradition
to ill faculty positions.
Fellowships are usually given for four years. At present, the average
fellowship grant is $10,000 per academic year. With approximately 12 fellows
in the program at any one time, AFTE spends nearly $120,000 each year on
direct grants. Interested in more information? Click Here!
Interested in doctoral work? You may want to apply to A Foundation for Theological
Education (AFTE) for financial assistance. Since 1977, over $2.5 million in
grants have been awarded to 106 John Wesley Fellows. These grants now average
$10,000 per year for four years.
