JSU Wesley Foundation guides students

Special to the Advocate

One day Thomas said to Jesus, “Lord, we do not know where you are going and how can we know the way?” 

Jesus replied, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” 

The Jackson State University Wesley Foundation seeks to guide the people like Thomas who are eager to know the way. The foundation provides answers to the way through the life of ministry it lives.  

The JSU Wesley Foundation, led by the Rev. Dwight Prowell, opens its heart to share the love Christ showed and opens its mind to new ideas to help the student find his identity in Christ. The foundation opens its door for an opportunity for every student on the JSU campus.  

This year the Wesley Foundation is focusing on five initiatives: 

  • To help students know Jesus Christ as savior and lord
  • To aid students in communicating the Christian faith to others
  • To assist students in achieving their goals within the perspective of the Christian faith
  • To help students find, understand and commit themselves to values which give meaning to their lives, relationships and vocations,
  • To provide counseling for the student in a group or individual session 

“Jesus said come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” 

The JSU Wesley Foundation “recommends all our students to the Lord.”
