About

Northwest Nazarene University welcomes pastors, students, scholars, and laypersons to campus each year for its Wesley Center Conference. Participants come from across the United States and around the world. Conference topics vary from year to year, as participants engage in the important issues of heart and mind.

This year's conference features a two-part format with different themes during the weekend: 

  • Thursday: "WesleyTalks: Faith and Culture"
  • Friday and Saturday: "Atonement in the Wesleyan Tradition" 

One registration fee covers Thursday through Saturday events (some meals are not included in the fee).

Thursday's Wesley Talks portion of the conference uses TedTalks videos to spark creative ideas and foster transforming conversations about Christian faith and ministry today. This will be one of the most stimulating and innovative conferences you'll ever attend!

Friday and Saturday's portion of the conference includes the annual Wesleyan Theological Society meeting. Scholars from around the country and the world explore key themes of atonement. New Testament scholar Ben Witherington (Asbury) and theologian Randy Maddox (Duke) are the meeting's keynote speakers. Wesley conference participants can attend WTS scholarly sessions or workshops led by NNU professors that address key issues and ideas in ministry today.
