This Week We Pray for Ohio Wesleyan University, Church of the Messiah in Westerville, and Jerome.

Ohio Wesleyan University  https://www.owu.edu/

Ohio Wesleyan University is a community of people who have an insatiable appetite for life and learning. We are passionate and eager to make connections with the world around us and the world within. Why? Because connecting disparate ideas, perspectives, and experiences fuels innovation and discovery. Our 200-acre campus offers endless opportunities to explore. Pursue them all. Dream up new ideas. Seize mind-blowing and future-shaping opportunities. Fully experience the richness and connectedness of a liberal arts education.

As a United Methodist-affiliated university, faith has traditionally been an important aspect of campus life.  While the days of 13 required chapel services per week are long gone, faith and ministry still live and breathe within the woodwork of OWU. Here you’ll be invited, not coerced, to explore your faith (and perhaps that of others) more deeply and to meet people who are also discovering the movement and call of God in their lives.
