The NOLA Wesley United Methodist Campus Ministry is an inclusive, justice-seeking campus ministry on the campus of Loyola and Tulane in New Orleans. We are open to students of all Christian denominations, with a particular heart for students who have been marginalized and alienated by the church.

Our regular activities include: Sunday evening worship, multiple small group Bible studies throughout the week; alcohol-free community events like open mics, movie nights, and coffeehouse outings; and community service projects building houses, feeding the homeless, and community gardening.

We have four core values that define the NOLA Wesley vision: open table, safe space, changed lives, and transformed world. Our table is open to whoever will join us, wherever they are in their faith journey. We create space where it is safe to be completely honest and make mistakes. We expect to have our lives changed by Jesus' love. We take responsibility for transforming our world according to the values of the kingdom of God.

Because of restructuring in our denomination, we are facing major budget cuts that require us to transition to private funding. We are completely different than a financially self-sufficient congregation that supports itself through its members' tithes. We depend on the generosity of those who would like to see inclusive college ministry thrive.

Thank you so much for your support! You are investing in the future of the church.

For the past two years, our co-director Cheryl has put in full-time work without compensation. We have found that in a campus ministry environment it's especially important to have both a male and female pastoral presence in the lives of our students even though the denominational funding for our ministry is rapidly decreasing. As of July 2017, we have decided to step out on faith and compensate Cheryl at a quarter-time rate. The more that NOLA Wesley achieves financial stability, the more that Morgan and Cheryl can both focus on being pastors to the students they love so dearly.
