The Wesleyan Experience
The combination of holy living and scholarship was part of the foundation of the Wesleyan movement.
In the same vein, John Wesley is quoted as saying:
“The first priority of my life is to be holy. The second goal of my life is to be a scholar.”
The Wesleyan Experience at Biblical Life Institute is a foundational study of basic Christian spiritual practice in light of our Wesleyan heritage. More than just a study, however, the program is designed so that students also experience the practices of Christianity and develop a personal approach to living the Christian life.
While the program has a focus on Wesleyan spirituality, a broad range of Christian writings and practices from across the spectrum of Christianity are included in the study and experience.
This one-year program is designed to develop the skills, knowledge, and habits for a lifetime of service in the Kingdom of God. The program is in a seminar format, combining lecture, formal and informal discussion, reading, and writing.
The experience is for freshmen, gap year students, “year abroad” students, and exceptional high school seniors. The main purpose of the program is the spiritual and intellectual formation of young men and women.
