Better stories of campus ministry


Janina Graves is now the associate director at the Wesley Foundation at Oklahoma State University. When she was a college student at OSU, she encountered the inevitability of countless questions as she began to navigate her adult life. At the OSU Wesley Foundation, she found a safe and loving place to explore the person God created her to be. Since that time, she has responded to God’s calling for ministry in her life, and she works to continue that experience for today’s students at OSU Wesley.

"That’s what we try to do at the OSU Wesley Foundation: Giving young people a space to discover that God really does love you enough that you can be yourself," Graves asserts.

A foundation of love supports the work of campus ministry to provide a place for students to ask tough questions about life and to seek the truth in real Christian community. Without fear of judgment, hate, or ridicule, these young adults are unfolding a more perfect picture of the community of God every single day.

Do you want to tell a better story?

Our United Methodist campus ministries have an active and vital role in the developing lives of young adults in colleges across Oklahoma. During their season of great growth and change, Wesley Foundations are a space for students to explore their faiths and identities as Christ-followers. Will you consider telling a better story?
