About Wesley at NMSU

Who we are

The Wesley Foundation at NMSU is a Christian collegiate ministry affiliated and sponsored by 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.

Archey Family Leadership Endowment

The Archey Family has shown an extraordinary commitment to the Wesley Foundation at New Mexico State University for over twenty-five years and two generations.  With a combination of grace and grit, Jan Preston Archey served as the Executive Director of Wesley from the Summer of 1994 until June 2010.  During Jan’s tenure, her husband, James Archey, graciously filled a variety of roles from handyman to Bible Study leader while her sons, Jeb Archey and Joe Archey, actively participated in the life of Wesley.  During their time at Wesley, many young adults were empowered to careers of professional ministry and Christian leadership.  Even after Jan retired as the Executive Director (she likes to use the phrase ‘changed ministry emphasis’ as one should never retire from ‘selling faith’), the Archey Family continued to support the ministry of Wesley through prayer, hands-on service, and financial donations.  What a blessing that they’ve chosen to bestow this wonderful gift upon Wesley as a lasting legacy of their tremendous outpouring of support.

To give click the "Donate" button above and choose "Archey Foundation." You can send your check to Box 4184, Las Cruces, NM 88003 and write "Archeys" in memo line.



We thank you GREATLY for your support! 

God bless!
