Alumni

What about our Alums?

The Wesley Foundation has been around for over a century and has seen many students pass through its doors. We love the opportunity to reconnect, like we did in Fall 2013 during our 100th anniversary festivities, and as we do at special events throughout the year.

We also like to connect online. So please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see what today’s Wesley students are doing.  And keep reading to learn where your fellow Wesley alumni have gone with their lives.

    How or why did you originally get involved with Wesley Foundation?
    The praise band.  I love music and I wanted to be a part of what Wesley was doing on Sunday mornings.

    What activities and/or people at Wesley were most influential to you?
    Both the praise band and leading Wednesday night worship services as part of the peer ministry team.

    Do these experiences or people influence you today?
    Absolutely!  I discovered my love and gifts for worship.  It became so much the pinnacle of my weekly routine that I ended up giving my life to it and going to seminary.

    How or why did you first get involved with the Wesley Foundation?
    I can’t recall exactly.  I attended a Methodist church prior to college, and was looking at different churches on campus.  I was probably a sophomore and after some other options that friends were involved in, I wound up attending Wesley on my own and found Midweek.  That led to further involvement and the Etc. coffee house and other opportunities.

    What activities and people at Wesley were most influential to you?
    Really enjoyed mid-week worship, volunteering in the Etc. coffeehouse, and went on a Habitat trip to Atlanta and canoed the Boundary Waters Wilderness area.  There were many influential people at Wesley including Diane Jeffers and Wayne Wilson.  Peers include David Martin (who I still see regularly on my trips to Chicago or his to California) and Patricia Gruber (whom I dated for a number of years).  Wesley really helped introduce me to a wide cross section of people with similar morals and values but whose life experiences and interest were different than mine.
