“Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” – Psalm 8:2

Our Motivation

The Wesleyan Church has deeply valued the next generation, even going back to John Wesley as he preached in the fields to children and youth.

And as we read the Scriptures, we see God using children and young people to shape and create his kingdom. From David beating Goliath, Esther saving her people, and Jesus choosing 12 young men to walk with him, young people are at the center of God’s plan. The desire of The Wesleyan Church is to continue to unleash the next generation to bring God’s kingdom to earth. Our children, middle school, high school and college students are the church now and are ready to be leaders, multipliers and disciple makers in our churches now. As we pursue God’s heart of multiplication and discipleship, the next generation will help us discover God’s heart.

Our Mission

Our mission is to unleash children, middle school, high school and college students as kingdom multipliers and disciple makers. We believe the next generation is ready to lead in the kingdom now and it is our privileged responsibility to unleash them into their full kingdom potential. We want to see every generation living out the fullness of The Greatest Commandment and The Great Commission as we pursue God’s presence.

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.”    Acts 2:17
