E. Stanley Jones Professors of Evangelism

The Foundation for Evangelism provides funding to support the E. Stanley Jones Professors of Evangelism at United Methodist and Wesleyan-tradition seminaries and schools of theology around the world including positions in Germany, Russia and Zimbabwe.

Named for the renowned evangelist and missionary, E. Stanley Jones, these professorships were established to prepare the next generation of leaders for ministry in the local church through classes in evangelism, missions, and a variety of other disciplines all taught with a focus on evangelism in the spirit of John Wesley. Through ongoing research and publication, these professors reach far beyond the seminary walls to educate and equip clergy, laity, and youth for evangelism ministries that bear fruit in the 21st century local church.

While most of the teaching occurs in Master of Divinity degree programs, several institutions provide education at the doctoral level with our E. Stanley Jones Professors of Evangelism providing leadership. Other professors provide classes in course of study and are helping the Church to develop guidelines for theological education.  These exceptional Christian leaders and teachers impact lives across the denomination and around the world.
