Every year Wesley Forum invites unique and interesting people to share their insights into how Wesleyan theology contributes to a vibrant, intelligent, and authentic faith. It is our honor to welcome Dr. Wendy Deichmann to address and lead discussions at our 2015 Wesley Forum. Dr. Deichmann will be sharing her research and practical leadership experiences in rediscovering and reimagining the role of orthodoxy to invigorate effective ministry. Her topic, “What’s Right with Orthodoxy?” will look at what orthodoxy is, how it affects ministry, and the future of historic faith in changing times.
Wendy serves United Theological Seminary as President and a member of the faculty. Her areas of specialization include the history of Christianity, American religious history, women in the history of Christianity, historical theology, and Wesleyan/United Methodist studies. She earned her M.Div. from Colgate Rochester Divinity School and her PhD from Drew University. She is co-editor of Gender and the Social Gospel and has authored numerous articles on the history of Christian missions and the social gospel movement.
