Wiley College Reaffirms Methodist Connection


Nearly 700 attended a special Celebrating the Church ceremony held in the Julius S. Scott, Sr. Chapel at Wiley College on September 6, to reaffirm the bond between The United Methodist Church and Wiley College. The theme mirrored that of this year’s Texas Annual Conference’s, “On Earth as in Heaven.”


Brittney Preston, Miss Wiley College United Negro College Fund, addressed the Wiley College community of different nationalities and church affiliations saying, “This morning on stage, you see United Methodist men and women who have answered their call to ministry in the United Methodist Church, but more importantly, to Christ. The desire of the Wiley College Community is to connect you with the universal Church regardless of your affiliation.” Wiley College will celebrate its 140th Anniversary in March during Founders Week.
