We are thrilled you are interested in Wesley, its membership and vision, and the Wesley faith family. I pray you will continue to grow in your relationship with Christ as we all — God’s children here and elsewhere — grow in relationship with each other. I too pray you will discover new and exciting ways to serve God.
Please study our website for answers about Wesley, and contact our office if you want to know more.
God bless you! I am excited to be your pastor and to grow in relationship with you as we serve our God.
Grace and peace,
Tiffany Knowlin Boykin
