Wesley Mission Trips
At Wesley we believe that we have to show Christ's love everywhere. So while we are active in our local community, we also have developed partnerships around the world.
Wesley has served in many parts of the world and our alumni continue to serve all over in both volunteer and staff positions with various different ministries and organizations.
Currently we have two mission trips every year. A freshmen mission trip and a general overseas mission trip to Costa Rica.
Spring break Mission Trip
Every Spring Break, our Freshmen group goes on a mission trip. In the past, we have gone to the Bahamas, Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina, & North Carolina. We often partner with St. Bernard Project (SBP) or Habitat for Humanity. Both involve construction work on homes for those in need, often because of the result of hurricanes, contractor fraud, and other variables that make it close to impossible to get back on their feet. Both organizations take matters into their own hands and make it their mission to do the work alongside the beneficiaries to make an impossibility, become reality (in the form of home ownership). Perhaps the most interesting part of these organizations, is how involved the local community is with the project. It really is a team effort and we are blessed to be part of the process (even if it’s only for a week).
Costa Rica Mission
This mission trip partners with Agua Viva Serves - an organization that seeks to provide clean, safe, drinking water to communities in Los Chiles, Costa Rica that currently do not have access to what many of us call a commodity.
Perhaps the biggest aspect that draws us to Agua Viva, is that they really seek to empower the locals. We are not the “American missionaries” riding in on a metaphorical “white horse” there to save the day. No. Agua Viva employs, trains, and equips locals amongst their staff and it’s the Costa Ricans that take initiative. When we send mission teams down there, we are simply supplying boost in manpower as we work ALONGSIDE the residents to build & install these water systems. More importantly, Agua Viva also trains and equips the residents to be self-sustaining once the building process is done.
We are looking forward to returning to Costa Rica (2020) for our 8th year in a row. We love the vision and we love maintaining the relationships we’ve established with our Costa Rican brothers & sisters.
We hope to continue to serve with these current partners for several more years as we continue to be the hands and feet of Christ.
