Missions Program

Each spring break, students and faculty serve on short-term mission trips to various locations domestically and around the world. Wesleyan partners with local ministries on each trip in order to ensure we build mutually beneficial relationships with the communities we serve. Participants in these trips experience new cultures, develop spiritual leadership, cultivate a Biblical worldview, and cultivate a heart of service to others.
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.
Beginning in 2000 as 2 trips to a single location with 22 students and 6 faculty members, the missions program has seen tremendous growth since its inception. The program's success is due to an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement, both prayerfully and financially, from the Wesleyan community.
