Mission Statement

The Wesley Foundation at the University of Michigan is a United Methodist campus ministry providing varied opportunities and programs for all students and other campus-related persons. We are a pluralistic community academically, theologically, and by age and interest. All students from nearby universities such as University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, Concordia University, and Washtenaw Community College are welcome. 

We are also a community of persons committed to caring, sharing, serving, learning, and growing with each other regardless of ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital or economic status, disability, or other human differences. Our common bond is God's love shown through Jesus Christ. Our emphases include concern for the social implications of the gospel in the world and personal growth as Christians. 

Supporting Wesley

Thanks to the help of many people, the Wesley Foundation at the University of Michigan has survived on this campus for over 100 years! In order to keep our mission going, please consider donating to our PayPal account. If you are in the area and would rather donate your time, consider emailing Maddie Dietrich about providing a Sunday meal, emailing Madi Stagner about helping lead a service project or helping lead a social action focused outing, or Robert Roth about anything else you may think of. We thank all those who help and those who continue to help us!
