ABOUT SAU Wesley
The SAU Wesley Foundation sits at the southwest corner of Southern Arkansas University's campus. We are a campus ministry of the United Methodist Church supported by individuals, local churches, and the Arkansas Annual Conference. To learn more about the SAU Wesley Foundation or to find out how you can be involved, check out the rest of our website, our Facebook page, or email the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our mission is to prepare individuals for Christian discipleship by growing and nurturing relationships in faith. Our vision is to be an inclusive, just, and loving community on SAU’s campus, which foster’s Christian fellowship and connects with people on all walks of life and faith.
It is easy for a campus ministry to look like just another club on campus, but we are a community of faith, grounded in our belief in Jesus Christ as the one who goes before us and leads us down the path of transformed living. We believe that as a community being in relationship and fellowship with others is vital to the Christian life. We worship God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- our Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, the Source of all life. We welcome you to join us as we journey together in this crazy, wonderful, and most uncertain life.
You are Welcome
No matter who you are, no matter what your beliefs, we’d like to welcome you into our community. As college students, we seek to intertwine the questions of faith and the questions of life as we travel along the journey of college and emerging adulthood together. We invite you to join us as we journey into the mystery of our lives and the mystery of God together.
