Wesleyan Denomination Chat



Since Tallgrass is now pursuing merging with The Well, a Wesleyan church in Manhattan, KS, we wanted to learn more about their denomination! So we sat down with Nate Rovenstine, District Superintendent for the Kansas District of the Wesleyan Church and Lead Pastor of Connect Church in Lawrence, along with Brian Smith, Lead Pastor of Westview Community Church in Manhattan, and Josh Siders, Co-Pastor of The Well to talk all about the Wesleyan denomination. Not only did we address 12 common questions, but also got to hear these men's heart for God and the mission of advancing His Kingdom. If you have any questions after listening to this chat, please contact Ben Deaver or Josh Siders and they'll be happy to find out!
