Wesley  College exists to form servant leaders for the church and community.   Since our first graduation ceremony in 2019, we have seen passionate,  faith-driven young people launched into new futures. Graduates have  learned not just professional skills, but an entrepreneurial worldview.   This directs them to look for challenges in their communities and ways  to contribute to new, innovative solutions.

When  a student becomes a graduate, many things change. The impact extends  well beyond each one's personal life. Within a 30 to 40 year career,  each graduate will impact hundreds or thousands more, as the ripples of  their service to others spreads.. Here are the stories of three new servant leaders


Called to do more.

Less than two years out of college, Anna is already wearing many hats.


God's timing is best.

One great opportunity lost, one great passion found.


Taking the call to service seriously.

Mostly, Dinna wants to love her neighbors anyway that she can


Accessibility is one of the four pillars of Wesley College Foundation. Students cannot
experience the transformative education of Wesley College without generous supporters,
interested in seeing lives changed. Gilbert was one of our featured students in 2023. He
shared how he wasn’t even able to finish high school because of his family’s financial situation and was forced into an endless string of low wage jobs just to support himself. The day he found out his studies would be supported through a scholarship he dropped everything else--recognizing this once in a life time opportunity.


Wesley College Foundation is growing. Brady Banks came on as the Director of Foundation Development; Dr. John Wayne Smith joined us as a new board member from Northwest Arkansas, and most importantly you all contributed more than ever before---making it possible to increase support to Wesley College and students in Tanzania. Gilbert is about to finish a second diploma in community development, has a small business that supports his family, and just started as the new pastor of Kalaluma United Methodist Church. He is a great example of how opportunity creates more opportunity and Wesley College Foundation is On the Move towards forming even more servant leaders for the church and community because of your support and work.
