Wesley Leadership Team Application

{Fall 2018 – Spring 2019}

The Wesley Foundation is very proud to be a student-led ministry. Your ideas, energy, and hard work are vital to each of the ways that we serve the Lord on Auburn's campus. The Lord is at work in this community and the Council is excited that you are interested in offering your time and gifts to join in His work!

 We ask that you prayerfully consider this application. Please keep in mind that being a part of the Leadership Team at Wesley will be a serious time commitment. We will soon form a covenant with the council and leadership, but as a leader within Wesley you are expected to refrain from alcohol consumption if you are under 21 and continue in abstinence or practice moderation if you are of age.  We also expect that you remember that your body is a temple of the Lord and practice healthy sexual boundaries. Lastly, we expect for you to be cautious of your tongue. We are called to speak the truth in love, not anger, jealousy, or dishonesty. All of these are in accordance with the scriptures. The leadership team will have the opportunity to offer input for the completion of the covenant.
