The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) is one of 13 international agencies, boards and commissions of The United Methodist Church. The organization was originally established as the Board of Education in 1866. It serves in a leadership development capacity for The United Methodist Church. GBHEM provides programs, events and resources for United Methodist lay (lay leader) and clergy leaders.
History[edit | edit source]
In the early 1800s, several denominations in America created educational opportunities for church leadership, emerging clergy, and Christian education in general. In 1866, as a part of 100 years of Methodism in the United States, Methodists created a Board of Education. In addition to the mandate for a Board of Education, in 1866 the Freedmen's Aid Society emerged to care for those who had been enslaved.
Higher Education[edit | edit source]
The Division of Higher Education at GBHEM has an advisory and consultative relationship to all United Methodist-affiliated institutions, including universities, colleges, secondary and special schools, Wesley Foundations and other collegiate ministries, conference boards, and similar organizations. The division develops and implements programs and practices that enable The United Methodist Church to engage, maintain and expand Methodist education around the world.
Ministry[edit | edit source]
The Division of Ordained Ministry at GBHEM supports the lay (lay leader) and clergy leaders of The United Methodist Church. Through the division, United Methodist leaders are provided education, training and resources to serve the church.
Loans and Scholarships[edit | edit source]
The GBHEM loan and scholarship programs are a service of the United Methodist Church to supplement the financial needs of students. These programs are funded through church offerings, wills, annuities and designated gifts.
Global Leadership[edit | edit source]
The Office of Global Education and New Initiatives coordinates GBHEM’s global activities, working with partners worldwide to enhance and support education opportunities. The agency supports 11 international associations across 80 countries.
