Wesley has made a huge impact on my life. I heard about Wesley through people I went to a church group with. When I joined Wesley my freshman year of 2018-2019 for college I was super excited and also nervous. Wesley has taught me a lot and has given me a better understanding of things. Being able to show my love and compassion with the different trips and organizations we did has helped me grow and know that I am someone others can look up to. I love Wesley and what we are able to do with Wesley and I can’t wait to experience more in the years to come!Dixie Herington
Wesley has played a huge role in helping me adjust as a transfer student. I found a loving community and a great network that help each other get connected with the campus and the surrounding community. It was through Wesley that I even found a great job close to my dorm. I am so thankful to have found this group!Rebecca Gackler

I’ve spent some time teaching about fundamentalism, and am planning on writingContinue reading “Director’s Thoughts – Understanding Fundamentalism”
