United Methodist Church Lifts Sanctions From Claremont School of Theology

July 08, 2010

CLAREMONT, Calif. – The University Senate of The United Methodist Church announced on June 25 that it is lifting its sanctions from Claremont School of Theology, reinstating the School's full affiliation with The United Methodist Church and unfreezing church funding to the School.

"We are extremely pleased that the University Senate has affirmed our School and our mission," said Rev. Dr. Jerry D. Campbell, president of the school. "I think that the review came about in the first place because some people were worried that we were turning a United Methodist-related seminary into something very different. But we were able to show the review committee that we have no such plans."
