The Wesley Ministry Institute (WMI) is the ministry formation and preparation college of the Wesleyan Methodist Church of New Zealand (WMCNZ).  

WMI is part of the pathway to meet the ministry formation and preparation requirements for ordination in the WMCNZ. WMI also provides training for lay ministry.

We welcome those from beyond the WMCNZ community who are looking for high calibre programmes of study that are contextualised for New Zealand and the South Pacific Region, and which will prepare them for Christian ministry in an environment that is increasingly multi-cultural, demanding and complex.
