The Western Jurisdiction COS is the basic theological education program of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) that offers training and education for people who are interested in becoming full or part-time local pastors in The United Methodist Church.
The courses are taught by faculty from Claremont School of Theology who are leaders in their field from across the Western Jurisdiction.
