Dr. Lovett H. Weems, Jr., Scholarship In recognition of Lewis Center Director Lovett H. Weems’s extraordinary contribution to scholarship in church leadership, Wesley Theological Seminary has established the Lovett H.

With a generous $250,000 matching gift challenge, we believe we can raise $1 million that will be invested in emerging leaders. Work is underway to secure support. If you are interested in honoring Dr. Weems with a gift, please contact Laura Norvell at (202) 885-8630 or or give online (see below on this page). Watch for further information about our progress. Dr. Weems will be honored at an upcoming event Sept. 28-29. We will post more information on our website in the coming months.The work of the Lewis Center for Church Leadership is supported primarily through gifts and grants. With you as our partner, we are building a new vision for church leadership grounded in faith, informed by knowledge, and exercised in effective practice through a holistic understanding of leadership that brings together theology and management, scholarship and practice, research and application.

  • Serves as a resource for clergy and lay leaders, congregations, and denominational leaders
