Message from the Director


Our Mission:
“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."

Our Vision:
Building authentic connections in Christ, community, and creation


Wesley Forest has a rich history of providing authentic and relevant Christian programing and retreat opportunities for people of all ages.

One of my favorite parts of my job is meeting people whose lives have been radically changed at Wesley Forest.  I meet people who tell me of the exact places around the site where they dedicated their lives to Christ.  I talk with pastors and church leaders who felt their call to ministry amidst this sacred 440 acres.  I’ve met others who share how their time spent at summer camp or on retreat is what gave them strength for their life journey.  I am living proof of finding peace and calling at Wesley Forest!  Countless life-long friendships have been formed here. This site has seen the birth of life-long friendships and innumerable God moments, all enveloped in joy from some serious belly laughs.

I could fill this space with stories of our incredible hospitality, our energetic and well-trained volunteers, our awesome programs, our beautiful scenery, and the pure joy and fun we have here at Wesley Forest.  But I want YOU to experience it for yourself.  I invite you to come visit us for the afternoon, the weekend, or a full week. Come rest, rejuvenate, and fill your soul for all that lies ahead. I invite you to join us here, to unplug, and ultimately find far deeper connection to one another and to the world around you.

A Wesley Forest family member said it best: “Camp is such a small word for a life-giving experience.”  I can’t wait to see you here!

In Christ,



Emily 2015
