The Wesley of Wilmington organization – a campus ministry of the United Methodist church – provides a place of community and faith in the midst of college life. Wilmington can be a big place where you can be around people but not have people in your circle. At WOW, we are all on a journey. We may have moved to Wilmington to come to school, or we may have lived in this neck of the woods our whole lives. We may be curious about God or we may be a follower of Jesus. Everyone is welcome!

Young people are hungry for answers to life’s questions. They are searching for meaning in their lives. Don’t we as United Methodists in the Harbor District want to find places where we can have these conversations with young people? If you want ideas how to interact with the college age people in your neck of the woods, please email me or give me a call.
Help us connect with the college students heading to Wilmington to study. We at WOW: Wesley of Wilmington want to connect with them! We want to provide a place for community, a place for discussing these questions of life, and a place for leadership. We aren’t trying to take your students away from your church. It is our intent to pour into them in WOW and thereby help them be stronger leaders in their home congregations and in the congregations they become a part of as they head out into the world.
Adults – How can you plug in? Become part of our prayer ministry and pray for college students to have deep and strong relationships with God. Become a financial supporter so that we can focus on relationships and not how we will pay for a college student’s meal at Bible study. Become an advocate and help us share the story of WOW: Wesley of Wilmington.
