Missions Program

The Wesleyan Missions program is designed to parallel the overall mission of the school by providing students opportunities to explore their faith in Christ through service to other cultures.

Each spring break, students enthusiastically heed His divine call to service. Working together and alongside faculty leaders, students develop spiritual leadership while cultivating a Biblical world view. The Wesleyan community is strengthened through these shared student and faculty service experiences.

The missions program has grown tremendously since its inception fourteen years ago. What began as two trips to one location with 22 students and six faculty members has grown at an incredible rate, in large part due to the support and encouragement from the Wesleyan community. In total, over 900 students and 190 faculty members have participated in missions projects in Argentina, Arizona, Atlanta, Bahamas, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Holland, Honduras, Hungary, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, Mississippi, Nicaragua, New Mexico, Peru, Romania, South Africa, Tanzania, Tennessee, Trinidad, Ukraine, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
