MOTOR CITY WESLEY is a collection of student-led missional communities interested in putting their faith into action. Typically each cohort experience consists of weekly discussions about Detroit, creativity, theology, homelessness, poverty, healthy food access, and God's work of justice and reconciliation through Christ. Guests from Detroit non-profits and churches join in to share their experience of the city. Students discern together and donate time to many of these non-profits and ministries to get a full picture of what they're all about.

In the "lab" part fo the MOTOR CITY WESLEY experience, students put what they've learned into action. Each student receives $100 to start a project of their own or to help an existing service/ministry. Students are also guided on ways to multiply this money to make an even larger impact. These projects aim to serve the city, the campus, and beyond.

MOTOR CITY WESLEY is a United Methodist affiliated non-profit providing opportunities for young people to serve their community while growing in their faith. Covenant partner churches also provide sustainable support and enjoy deepening relationships with MOTOR CITY WESLEY students as project partners and supportive communities of faith. Students are also encouraged to take advantage of connectional opportunities like the "Imagine What's NEXT" gathering and grant programs through the UMC.

MOTOR CITY WESLEY is led by students at Wayne State University and other local schools, along with young adults and ministry staff from area churches. Deacon Carl Gladstone serves as Motor City Wesley clergy advisor.

At our first 25 patrons we'll launch the sharing of our official #MotoWesley radio show hosted by Samson Kobbah III.  He'll be recording and broadcasting on WAYN radio at Wayne State, but your support will help us turn that show into a multimedia resource including YouTube and Podcast versions! AND we'll be able to turn our Motor City Hymns project from a solely digital release into one with a limited run of CDs (and maybe even vinyl albums!)
