The goals of EXPLORE for you are:

  1. To help YOU deepen your faith
  2. To help YOU discover your gifts, graces, and charisms for a Christian life
  3. To help YOU listen for God’s CALL for your life, and help you respond to that call

At EXPLORE we will help you meet these goals by providing:

  • A strong theology faculty team from Ohio Wesleyan and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus, to help you explore sacred scripture and  traditions,  and moral and ethical dimensions of your world today.
  • A nurturing team of OWU chaplains, mature and committed student leaders, and caring community partners to help you translate your faith journey into real-life Christian leadership.
  • Personal time for you to pray, reflect, and journal about your gifts, graces, and charisms.
  • Lively and deep conversations with Christian leaders to help you explore your personal life calling.
  • Community worship and prayer using both Catholic and Protestant traditions.
  • Connections with all of us that can last a life time, with follow-up activities to help you become a stronger leader in your local church and community.

Ohio Wesleyan University is an independent, undergraduate liberal arts institution. Outstanding teaching is a hallmark of the University, which is best known for the quality and accessibility of its faculty. Founded by Methodists in 1842, Ohio Wesleyan maintains an active affiliation with The United Methodist Church, but welcomes students of all religious faiths.

The University Chaplain provides support for all denominations and coordinates an active program of social action, community service, and faith-based missions. Ohio Wesleyan has repeatedly received national awards for this commitment to Faith, Service, and Calling.
