WESLEY CONNECT

A Wesley Connect Leader’s main job is to help create a fun and inviting environment on Wednesday Nights. A Wesley Connect Leader would be responsible to help facilitate all pre-service, mid-service, and post-service guest services offered to students. These responsibilities include greeting, ushering, decorating, working the welcome center, initiating conversations, and setting an environment that lets all students know that they matter. Wesley Connect Leaders will also be expected to follow up with new students outside of Wednesday night. We are looking for students who are willing to be the first ones to show up and the last to leave because they come alive having fun and making other people feel welcome and included.
Expectations and Time Commitment: 5-6 hours/week
  • Wednesday Night Service Set Up: (1 hours)
  • Wednesday Night Service
  • Bi-weekly one-on-one Discipleship (1 hour)
  • Follow Up With new students (Occasionally)

FRESHLEY SMALL GROUP

Freshley’s purpose is to provide an environment where 1st year students can grow in their faith and form community with one another. This primarily takes place through a Monday night Freshley service. Freshley Small Group Leaders facilitate a same-sex small group discussion after the Freshley service. In addition, Freshley Small Group Leaders are asked to follow up with freshmen outside of Monday nights, be a part of Freshley fellowship events/retreats, and to consider going on our Jamaica spring break mission trip.

STUDENT DISCIPLESHIP

Discipleship is at the core of our mission at Wesley and one of the primary things we are committed to as a ministry. At Wesley, we want to give students who are already on the journey of discipleship the opportunity to lead others by making disciples as well. You will have the opportunity to walk through life with another student and invest in what The Lord is doing in their lives.
Expectations and Time Commitment: 3.5-4 hours/week
  • Discipling 2-4 students (2-4 hours) every two weeks
  • Bi-weekly Student Discipleship Meeting / Coaching Meeting (1 hour)
  • Bi-weekly one-on-one Discipleship (1 hour)

WESLEY SMALL GROUP

The Wednesday night service is the main gathering and key formational experience for the Wesley body. Wednesday Night Small Group Leaders will facilitate a same-sex small group after the Wesley Service so that students have the opportunity to connect with one another and also discuss that night’s message further. All Small Group Leaders will be trained before every service in how to lead a discussion based on that night’s message. Additionally, Small Group Leaders are asked to follow up with students outside of Wednesday nights.
Expectations and Time Commitment: 4-5 hours/week
  • Weekly Leadership Small Group before the Wednesday Night Service: (1 hours)
  • Wesley Service and following Small Group (2 hours)
  • Bi-weekly one-on-one Discipleship (1 hour)
  • Fellowship Opportunities/Retreats: (seasonal)

WORSHIP

Wesley Worship serves the Wesley body as a whole.  We seek to worship God in spirit and in truth, and lead others to do the same.  Investing into our team’s relationship with Christ, students will grow in their character as well as their musicality.  Unity and community are vital to a worship team.  Over the semester, students are required to attend several all-team nights.  These nights are engaging times of fellowship and teaching, and mandatory to play at services.
Expectations and Time Commitment: 6-8 hours/week
  • On weeks playing, a two-night-a-week commitment:
  • Worship Service (either Monday or Wednesday) [1.5 hours]
  • Practice (either Monday or Tuesday) [1.5 hours]

Other Commitments:
  • Regular Wednesday attendance (2 hours)
  • Bi-weekly one-on-one Discipleship (1 hour)
  • Monthly All-Team Nights (2 hours)

**You may only select Worship if you have completed a tryout and have been accepted onto the team by a worship director**
