The E. Stanley Jones Professors of Evangelism are positions at Methodist/Wesleyan-tradition Seminaries and schools of theology around the world including positions in Germany, Russia and Zimbabwe. The Foundation for Evangelism initiated these professorships in 1984 and continues to provide funding to support the professors’ work.

These professors prepare the next generation of leaders for ministry in the local church through classes in evangelism, missions, and a variety of other disciplines all taught with a focus on evangelism in the spirit of John Wesley. Through ongoing research and publication, these professors reach far beyond the seminary walls to educate and equip clergy, laity, and youth for evangelism ministries that bear fruit in the 21st century local church.

These exceptional Christian leaders and teachers impact lives across the denomination and around the world.
