School Details

Founded in 1903 as Greensboro Bible and Training School in Greensboro, North Carolina, John Wesley University’s founders are Reverend Seth Rees and Reverend Charles Weigle. Throughout the first thirty years of existence, the school enjoyed enrollments of traditional students and adults studying for ministry. While the college added degree programs at higher levels, it underwent several name changes. Most recently, the Board of Trustees voted to officially change the name of the university to John Wesley University. This is a move to return to the evangelical identity the university has claimed for over a century.

John Wesley University is a Bible University and all undergraduates receive a bible minor as well as a degree in their major discipline. Students can earn associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in religion, business, and education disciplines, both online and in traditional formats.
