Who We Strive To Be At Wesley

We are:

  • a family of people who are empowered by fulfilling the great commandment, having a love for Jesus that invades and impacts every facet of our entire being
  • an army of radical lovers of Christ who wholeheartedly embrace Jesus' commission to go to all the nations, starting right here on the campuses of UCF, Seminole Community and Valencia Community Colleges
  • a house of prayer where healing occurs, strongholds are broken, and intimacy with Jesus is cultivated
  • a people of worship who embrace all forms of the arts as an expression of our love for Christ

Come Get Involved!

At the Wesley Foundation, you don't have to be a "Christian" to come. If you are searching for a place to fit in or just want to learn more about Jesus, you are more than welcome. There will be no pressure from anyone; you can come and be yourself.

Community Groups are the main focus of Wesley. They are small groups of college-aged persons that meet weekly for the purpose of building friendships, learning more about Jesus, and sharing life experiences.

We have a weekly worship service on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm, followed by a time of fellowship at our coffeehouse. During our time together, we pursue relationship with Jesus Christ and one another through music, teaching, and community. We meet in the EpiCenter at University Carillon United Methodist Church. We are located adjacent to campus on McCulloch Rd.
