Our conversation begins with hope.

The mission of God is unfinished. We have much to do and God has called us to be faithful in the future. However, from time to time we need to step back and take a look at how the picture is coming together, even if unfinished. This page is intended to help us do that very thing.

God’s blessing has been upon The Wesleyan Church, and we should pause to celebrate each stat to His Glory and to no one else (see below). We should also be mindful that each stat, number, and tick on a graph is a human being made in the image of God. For this reason I have shared a few stories of what I am seeing God do in the church today, so we don’t get caught up in the numbers without remembering the very real people they represent.

Dr. Wayne Schmidt, General Superintendent of The Wesleyan Church
