VertDept_CrossTraining copyCROSS Training is an online ordination program for The Wesleyan Church.

Designed for pastors desiring to be ordained through The Wesleyan Church, the CROSS Training program is offered exclusively through Oklahoma Wesleyan University. The courses fulfill the academic requirements for ordination set forth by the Educational Ministry Department of The Wesleyan Church.

Maximum Flexibility

This CROSS Training program is only offered online so you can be in class wherever you live or travel as long as you can access the Internet. You can go to class on your time and at your pace and at your location for your online pastoral training.

CROSS Training Duration

Approximately two weeks before classes start for your online adult ministry education program, you will be given access to your class, which is located in Brightspace. There you will be able to download a copy of the course syllabus, meet your instructor, order your books, and get acquainted with the class.

CROSS Training classes run Monday-Sunday and most are three weeks long. Pastoral training classes will incorporate discussion boards, handouts, videos, links, and other material to help you achieve the course objectives. All course work will be completed during your training program online classes according to the course schedule. There is no pre- or post-course work. You will receive a letter grade for every class and you must successfully pass a course, earning a C or better, in order to be counted towards the Ordination requirement.
