At Foundry, we believe that Jesus is big enough. In all places, in all ways and for all people, Jesus is big enough. God’s mercy is far-reaching. It is deep and wide and it is for you.
We say Jesus is big enough because we want to have a larger vision of Jesus than we have of the world.
Our mission at Foundry is “Creating Environments For People To Experience a God Big Enough For All Their Needs”.
Life happens in all moments and in all places. For everything we encounter, Jesus is big enough. Whether at lunch with friends or in your office, on a coffee date or outside with your kids, a night around the grill in the backyard or in a worship service…in the everyday and the extraordinary, Jesus is there and He is big enough.
So we desire to create these places for every person to experience Jesus. We might experience Him through worship, teaching, relationships are simply having fun with other people.
In the early 1700’s, John and Charles Wesley gathered together with other students at Oxford and began pursuing a life of intentionally following Jesus. They prayed, read and served together. Over time, they (and their friends) entered into ministry and began a revival movement in England that spread throughout the world. It focused on grace, personal awareness and developing a personal relationship with Jesus. This movement was called the Methodist Revival and birthed over 80 church traditions.
Foundry is a part of the United Methodist Church, the largest of the churches springing from this revival. We are an official plant of the Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church and operate in the Monroe District.
Our name comes from the original headquarters of the Methodist revival, a burned out canon foundry abandoned by the British Navy and purchased by John Wesley to be the center of a movement of Jesus.
