for your desire to see lives changed through giving to John Wesley Student Missions.

Your donation will provide students the opportunity to connect you, your neighbors, and the next generation to Jesus through service in the community around them.


John Wesley Students and adult sponsors meet nine Saturdays a year to build and complete a wheelchair ramp in one day for someone in need. These student-built ramps will pass inspection and meet ADA rules and regulations.  Materials for each ramp cost approximately $1600, but the freedom and mobility they provide for the recipients is priceless.


UM Army is a 7-day long summer mission trip. John Wesley Junior and Senior High students travel together and descend on small towns in Texas along with other church's student ministry groups to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those in need. In the summer of 2023, UM Army kids built over 360 feet of ramps and served over 35 people in need in Crockett, TX. The cost for both students and adult volunteers to attend UM Army camp is $350 each, which covers materials, food, housing, and other essentials. The impact on recipients outweighs the cost by a mile!


We encourage our adults and youth alike to be world-changers for Jesus! This year, the JW Student Mission Fund allowed us to send two college students to Kenya where their world views were changed, and a desire for international missions was planted in their hearts. In 2022, generous gifts made it possible for three of our high school students to travel to Costa Rica where they helped build a wall and bring a mini Vacation Bible School to students of Casa Hogar, the Methodist Children's Home in San José.
JW Student Missions are supported by THE SHANNON STOVALL MEMORIAL YOUTH MISSION FUND at John Wesley Church, which was established to remember and celebrate Shannon Stovall's loving and giving nature and her appreciation of helping others through youth mission projects. Our purpose is to enable our youth to participate in various mission projects such as building wheelchair ramps, home repairs, helping at local food banks, shelters, and hospitals. We believe that not only our recipients benefit from this work, but our youth also develop compassion, integrity, leadership, and spiritual growth.

If you would like to get involved and become active in one of our youth mission projects, please contact Chris McCarthy, Director of JW NextGen Ministries.
