Leading SGAUMC Forward: A Bright Future with Hope

Wesleyan College

 

Photographed on the steps of Pierce Chapel are just a few of the hundred-plus students who participate in faith and service groups on campus. Also pictured from left to right: Dr. Tyler Schwaller, chaplain and assistant professor of religious studies; Tonya Parker ‘01, dean for equity and inclusion and chief diversity officer; Dr. Vivia Fowler, president; and Dr. Kaiya Jennings, director of faith and service – all ordained ministers.

 

Faith and service are cornerstones of the Wesleyan College mission. We cherish our longstanding affiliation with The United Methodist Church and are grateful for the spiritual grounding that relationship provides. Wesleyan’s office of campus ministry serves the entire campus community and offers students ample opportunities to explore their faith and discern their calling in the world. Programming like retreats, pilgrimage weekends, and shared fellowship opportunities also provide welcome respite from the rigors of the academic year.

 

In addition, a variety of organizations enhance the religious life on campus with Bible studies, workshop experiences, trips, retreats, and social activities – student organizations like the Wesleyan Foundation, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Reformed University Fellowship, and the Episcopal and Lutheran Fellowship. Additional student leadership is provided by the Wesleyan Disciples, Servant Leaders, and student interns for Wesleyan’s faith and service activities.

 

Wesleyan emphasizes a Culture of C.A.R.E. which focuses on the importance of Community, Accountability, Respect, and Equity. The Lane Center for Social and Racial Equity leads the campus and surrounding community in celebrating diversity, practicing inclusion, and striving for equity. Creating a sense of belonging and caring is rooted in the integration of faith and service, as is the role of faith and service programming in helping students discern their vocations and chart a course to become who they are called to be. We are blessed to have a core of leaders who are also clergy, who address the many challenges faced by students and the campus community in pastoral ways. We are seeing the fruits of these labors in the climate of care, belonging, and sense of purpose that thrives today at Wesleyan College.
