Student Life

Wesley Biblical Seminary knows that the best learning happens in community. Whether you’re online, on-campus, or both, we want you to know that you are a member of a supportive seminary community that prays for one another, holds each other accountable, and does ministry together.

Spiritual Formation

Discipleship Groups
Both online and on-campus students enjoy a weekly discipleship group with a faculty member either on our Jackson campus or through some means of “meeting” online (e.g. Skype). Scripture, life sharing, and prayer are central to each group.
Each M.Div. student must complete six semesters of discipleship groups. M.A. students must have at least four semesters. These are not for credit, but they are vital to binding together our community in holy love and unity of focus.

Chapel
Students are invited to join faculty, staff, and administration at chapel on Mondays and Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. As our campus community’s needs change and classes shift more toward the evenings and weekends, this element of our spiritual life together will not disappear, but it may evolve into something which allows for more people to attend.

Ministries
Jackson, Mississippi is an excellent place to get involved in urban ministries. Opportunities abound for on-campus students to get involved in ministries to the homeless, imprisoned, addicted, abortion-minded, and any other number of mission fields.
