Celebrating 75 Years!

Our work has always focused on strengthening leaders, laity and congregations to be resilient faith communities sharing the Gospel and inviting others into the Body of Christ. Our work to help the Wesleyan-tradition church retain and act upon its zeal for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ has involved countless hours of resourcing, relationship-building and combined grant awards of more than $17 million.

Equip Disciples - Transform Lives

The Foundation for Evangelism’s purpose is to be the catalyst to equip disciples to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. The promise we see in the Church is rooted in John Wesley’s belief that everyone has an essential role to play to spread the light and love of Jesus to our world. We provide grants and tools designed for laity and pastors, working together, to invite those beyond their walls to join them on the Christian journey.
