About Wesley at NMSU

Who we are

The Wesley Foundation at NMSU is a Christian collegiate ministry of the United Methodists.  We're here to offer a safe, open place for college students to be accepted as they are and to grow in their love of God and humanity. 

We are grateful for the support of our conference, local churches, and partners.  Together, we seek to help  students grow in their faith through worship, study, discipleship, service, and fellowship. 

We provide a supportive space where students can feel comfortable engaging in open discussions about faith, vocation, social justice, and other topics. Wesley helps students integrate their faith with their academic lives and personal values.

There are so many great reasons to attend Wesley!  If you would like to partner with us in giving or prayer or you're a student who has questions then we are here to help! Feel free to email, call, or make an appointment to come check us out, meet the students and our director, and see what we're all about.

We all long to belong.  We all need to be needed.  We want a place where our voice matters, where we are safe to ask questions, and where we will be accepted as we are.  We think Wesley is that place.
