The UNI Wesley Foundation supports the ministries of local churches by connecting with students both on and off campus. David Glenn-Burns, the campus minister at the Wesley Foundation at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, received a note recently, confirming the important connections they make with students.
“On behalf of the Reinbeck United Methodist Church, I want you all to know how grateful we are for the ministry of the Wesley students and Rev. Glenn-Burns. The relationships you have established with the youth will be life shaping relationships for them. The relationship you have established with our church is certainly a witness to the Body of Christ at work through the connection. I was moved by the depth of respectful, thoughtful reflection that was just hanging in the air in the library last night when I so rudely interrupted you. Great Job!!”
UNI Wesley offers a variety of ways for students to connect with each other through worship, Bible studies, book clubs, service projects, meals, and much more. This summer, for example, they are providing a community meal at the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church on the 3rd Thursday of the month.
