The JOY motto is the heart of our service at Wesleyan. We seek to follow the example of Christ, who “came not to be served but to serve” (Matthew 20:28, Mark 10:45), and give generously of our time and resources in gratitude for all that God has done for us (1 Samuel 12:24). In serving the community, we look to the interests of others above ourselves (Philippians 2:4). Throughout the school year, students in all divisions can participate in service opportunities.
