The GSU Wesley Foundation is a ministry focused on meeting students where they are and helping them connect deeply to Christ, the campus community, and the church. Our mission is to teach, equip, and challenge students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
Every Wednesday at 8, students gather together for worship and teaching at Pittman Park United Methodist Church. No matter where you have come from or where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to journey with you and help you to live a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.
Wednesday Nights @ 8 at Pittman Park UMC
(1102 Fair Road, Statesboro, GA 30458)
We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Living in community allows us to experience God through close relationships as we pray together, encourage each other, and live out God’s word together. At Wesley we call this a Community Group. These small groups consist of 7-12 attendees and meet every week in a Leader's home.
We believe that a life led by Christ includes service. At Wesley, we're partnering with local church and community organizations like Homes for Heroes, the YMCA, Habitat For Humanity, and Rebecca's Cafe to serve Statesboro and the surrounding community.
In addition to local service projects, we also organize both domestic and abroad mission trips for Winter and Spring breaks. Each year we sent a team of students to the Dominican Republic where they help support the ministry of local churches there by building parsonages, leading Bible School, and connecting with other young adults.
Wesley is more than just four walls. We are on campus, in classes, every day loving and serving our Georgia Southern Community in every way we can. Sometimes that's participating in campus events or handing out donuts, and sometimes it's just saying hi to the person next to you in class.
Wesley is constantly creating. We have an awesome community of singers, musicians, writers, photographers, and graphic designers that use their talents to worship and glorify God every day.
Wesley would not be possible if it weren't for the students on our Lead Team. They're the ones working behind the scenes, out on campus, and in our community every day. If you're looking for a way to serve and deeply invest in a tight knit Christian community, we encourage you to consider joining our team.
In the past year, we've celebrated 18 baptisms and 31 commitments to Christ! This is proof that God is really in this place and that we are doing more than hosting a worship service every Wednesday night. We are so excited to see what God has in store for us this year and we hope you'll join us!
