A Mission to the Collegiate Community
Why do we call ourselves a Mission? Because our campus ministries are placed on college campuses that are a different culture, one set apart from the rest of the world around it. Colleges are mini cities with about 40,000 residents who have their own language, rules and values. Our campus ministers, just like an out of country missionary, must learn this culture in order to minister to this society in which the college student is immersed.
Also, just like an out-of-country missionary, our campus ministries must raise money in order to support themselves. The Conference supports only a portion of their budgets and everything else, from volunteer hours, building needs and ministerial funds come from generous donors who understand the importance of campus ministry to college students.
The first Wesley Foundation was launched 100 years ago! Our Mission is as important today as it was a century ago. Click through and learn about the nine Wesley Foundations in the Florida Conference.
