We exist to help you in your spiritual journey. A healthy spiritual life is an important part of a happy and successful college experience, and growing spiritually is as vital as growing physically, socially, and intellectually as you encounter the challenges of college life.
One guide along the path of your spiritual journey is our University Minister, who serves as campus pastor to all members of the Wesleyan community regardless of their religious affiliation. The University Minister serves as the campus pastor and is available for personal counseling, religious and vocational counseling, and spiritual guidance.
Chapel Worship Service
Join the Wesleyan community on Tuesdays at 12:10pm for our chapel service. Worship is intimate and informal, yet relevant for the needs of the Wesleyan community. Held in Miller Memorial Chapel, our campus worship services are an expression of Christian worship on campus that incorporate a variety of styles of worship and music. You are welcome to bring your lunch with you and enjoy a community of spiritual seekers looking for a deeper connection with God.
Diversified Religious Life Programs
The University intends to provide an active, diversified religious life program designed to meet the total range of students’ spiritual development needs. Activities and organizations, including Cru, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), the Wesleyan Student Fellowship, and the NWU Catholics (FOCUS) provide students with opportunities for fellowship, community service, and celebration. Spiritual resource persons are also available to students.
The Mattingly and Swan lectures annually present speakers who focus on religion, ethics, and values.
Internships and Service Learning Opportunities
Internship and service-learning opportunities are available in the University Minister’s office and in local, national and international religious communities. For more information about religious life activities and/or organizations, contact University Ministries in Old Main 105 or 106, ext. 2222.
Sunday Night Live @ First UMC
On Sunday nights we gather with people from the community at First United Methodist Church for worship and a meal. We worship from 6:00pm-6:30pm and eat afterwards. This worship features different speakers, great music, and messages that speak to the struggles of our generation. First UMC is located across 50th street. You don't want to miss it!
