“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and love your neighbor as yourself.” - Luke 10:27

Rebecca Cole has a passion for living out Jesus’ commandment to love the Lord and her neighbor. Three years ago, this passion led her to move from California to Washington, D.C., to study as an Urban Fellow at Wesley. This month, Cole will graduate with her Master of Divinity degree and dedicate herself to a ministry of justice and community engagement.

When a building, like Wesley’s new residence hall, is built using the tilt-up construction method, the concrete elements like walls, columns and structural supports are formed horizontally on a concrete slab.

Sean Devolites has a strong desire to serve God in whatever capacity he is called to pursue. “My desire to learn more about my faith and God, as well as my desire to share this faith as much as possible through my actions and relationships, has led me to seminary.  I'm not quite sure where I want to work yet, but I know that I want to be able to serve God wherever it is I go,” Sean said.

Originally from Northern Virginia, Sean is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity Degree at Wesley and is the recipient of a Bishop’s Scholarship. “The scholarship has impacted my ability to do graduate work simply because it has meant that I could afford to do it. Being one year removed from college I didn't have much money in savings, and the scholarship has meant that I am able to continue to pursue my studies here at Wesley. I had thought a lot about entering...
