Welcome to Wesley United Methodist Church of Ocean Springs, MS! Our mission is to bring people to Christ, and together become the light of God's love to serve our community and the world. Join us as we journey toward becoming all that God has created us to be - both individually and as the body of Christ.
At the 1984 session of the Mississippi Annual Conference, authorization was given to start a new church "way out east" of what was currently the city limits of Ocean Springs. Rev. Jim Matheny was appointed as our initial pastor and the very first official worship service was held on October 7, 1984. Until a location could be established, the congregation worshipped in the cafeteria of Magnolia Park Elementary School.
Shortly thereafter, heavily wooded land at the (then) rather rural intersection of Old Spanish Trail and Hanshaw Rd. was acquired.
