(Chile CNSAM). On Saturday, November 10, 2012, the Nazarene Bible Seminary in Chile (Seminario Bíblico Nazareno [SBN]) held a Day of Theological Reflection – called “Wesleyans in the 21st Century” – in commemoration of another year of life for that institution.
Attended by over 70 people, the day of reflection was intended to recall the origins of the holiness movement led by John Wesley and the degree of influence that it has in Chilean society, as well as the challenges to be faced in the 21st century.
The speakers for the day were: Dr. Oswaldo Fernandez, Dean of the Presbyterian Theological Seminary and visiting professor of Nazarene Theological Seminary, Southern Cone, in Pilar, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Dr. Ricardo Gomez, pastoral training coordinator for Latin America at the Free Methodist Church; and the Rev. Alfredo Veloso, Los Lagos District Superintendent, Church of the Nazarene and professor at SBN.
It is worth mentioning that, in addition to the presence of national leadership and brothers and sisters from various Nazarene churches in Chile, representatives attended from other churches with Wesleyan backgrounds, such as the Salvation Army and the Free Methodist Church, among others.
Nazarene Bible Seminary of Chile is headquartered in Santiago, Chile, and is an institution that has completed 37 years of working in the training of pastors and leaders of Chile through the decentralized theological studies mode (estudios teológicos descentralizados, ETED), based in several cities in Chile, and also through the online mode.
