Spiritual Life

North Carolina Wesleyan University is committed to the spiritual as well as intellectual, physical, and social growth of its students. The goal of campus Spiritual life is to provide an atmosphere of genuine care and close personal relationships. This is central to the idea of the Christian community and is conducive to spiritual growth. While Wesleyan is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, it is open to all persons, regardless of their religious beliefs. There are numerous Spiritual Life opportunities and services provided to assist students in their spiritual journey. These activities provide students the occasion to explore questions of faith, develop personal relationships through fellowship activities, express one’s faith through song or service, or to join with other members of the Wesleyan community in worship. Student Ministries meet at various locations across campus every night of the week.

Current Spiritual life groups which meet weekly include:

3W University Ministry

Wesleyan is also very proud of our award winning, Gospel Choir, Voices of Triumph.

We are a group of young adult University students who dare to step out and be different in word, thoughts, and our actions.  We don’t just sing!  We are the songs that we minister.  We are believers!  We are victorious!  We are intelligent!  We are VOT!!!

“There is an International Student Ministry geared to the unique needs of Wesleyan’s dynamic, growing population of international students.

Additionally, the baseball and football teams each have their own chaplains, who provide pregame messages and weekly Bible studies.  The chaplains also attend several of the games each season.

In keeping with our status as an inclusive institution, students who are interested in establishing a new campus ministry are asked to contact Elliott Smith at esmith@ncwu.edu.
