Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

Local Pastors Licensing School -- Class of 2010


In mid-June, 33 people attended this two-week training course. Oklahoma City University annually hosts the school. Sessions range from how to conduct weddings and funerals, to financial information, to Church history and polity. Participants must attend the full course to receive the license to preach; some United Methodists, already certified, attend specialized training segments offered during the school.
