Welcome to our Community!
The Wesley Foundation is an inclusive, open-minded campus ministry. We welcome students as they are--no one has to pretend to be ok when you're not! Whether you grew up Christian, are new to faith, or aren't really sure what you believe, you are welcome in our community. We approach faith with curiosity, honestly exploring our doubts and questions as we seek to be authentic followers of Jesus. We don't have all the answers, but journey together as we ask the big questions. College is an exiting time filled with new possibilities, but it can also be stressful sometimes even lonely. We create safe spaces for community across campus where you can truly be yourself and receive support from loving friends. We eat together, worship together, serve together, and have fun together. Come and meet us! We'd love to welcome you into our community.
Wesley is a Reconciling Ministry
The Wesley Foundation is proud to be a reconciling ministry, which means that we are a queer inclusive community. We believe that all people are beloved children of God who are of sacred worth. We strive to be a community of love and grace, open to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, races, abilities, diverse economic levels, ages, and personal backgrounds. Whoever you are, whoever you love, you are welcome here.

What's a United Methodist?
Across the United States, Wesley Foundations can be found on college and university campuses. Named after John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, Wesley Foundations are dedicated campus ministry communities supported by the United Methodist Church. The Wesley Foundation at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities is dedicated to advancing the larger mission of the church, as we seek to make disciples and empower young adults as leaders for the church and the world.
