The Fifth Annual Wesley Studies Symposium took place on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 at the Bayview Campus Auditorium.
Tyndale's Wesley Studies Symposium exists to build a community of people who are studying Wesleyan theology, and seeking to apply it to mission and ministry in Canada and globally. The 2013 symposium, organized by James Pedlar (Tyndale Seminary), featured a broad range of papers from a diverse group of scholars, and a very interesting guest lecture from Donald E. Burke, President of Booth University College, on the topic, “Salvation for Both Worlds: Contours of a Wesleyan/Biblical Social Theology.”
