Seminary Week, June, 2010

Seminary is meeting this week in Cabudare, Venezuela on the campus of Seminario Weselyano de Venezuela.  Academic Dean David and his wife Carol are hosting the week.  The professors are Randy and Rachel Coleman. Class meets Monday, 2pm through Friday Noon.  A student satisfying all the requirements of the classes can earn 4 hours toward a Bachelor's (equivalent) level degree.  It is expected that 8-12 students will be awarded the degree in August after completing over 6 years of study.
Randy and Rachel Coleman served 13 years in Ecuador with OMS International.  They currently direct the OMS student center on the Asbury campuses in Wilmore.  The topic this week is Christian Marriage.  On Friday afternoon the seminary will host a seminar on the Theology of Women in Ministry, which Rachel and Randy will teach.
The photos are of a class-participation exercise on Wednesday afternoon.  There are 40 students in class this week from all parts of 
the country.  The Coleman's have commented several times on how anxious the students are to learn and what a joy it is to teach these who so want to put into practice what they are learning.
