Haley has felt a persistent calling to college-campus ministries since her days as an undergraduate active in Baylor University’s campus ministries. After Baylor, Haley earned a Masters in Theological Studies from Brite Divinity School and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Religious and Culture at SMU, where she has also taught in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. As a student, minister, and activist, Haley has received several awards for her service and grants for her work for women’s rights in South Africa. Over the past few years, in addition to teaching, writing, and serving in vocational ministry, Haley has co-founded a grassroots movement called Christianity Is a Verb that seeks to encourage the marriage of faith and activism. Haley is most passionate about discovering the Divine in the voices, stories, and struggles that often get marginalized, forming self-giving and mutual relationships, helping young people find their voice to speak truth to power and grace to others, and working together to carry and transform each other’s messes and the messes of this world as Christ’s hands and feet. She is blessed to “explore the Infinite Abyss” of life with her son Christian and husband SB, and she is ineffably grateful and excited for this adventure with the Wesley Foundation!

Baylee feels blessed with the opportunity to be part of the Wesley, and she hopes you’ll experience the loving community it offers! This will be her third (and final!) year at UNT and her second as Student Minister at the Wesley. Baylee majors in Psychology with a minor in Theatre. On Sundays, she sings and attends worship at First Lewisville. She served at her home church in Granbury on numerous mission trips and praise bands while in youth, and she returns to intern over the summer. Her favorite part of the Wesley, and something she hopes to continue growing, is the sense of community and welcome it has for ALL people. At the Wesley, Baylee leads the home group Unplugged and sings in the worship band. She loves Dr. Pepper and Whataburger probably more than anyone you’ve met so far, and would usually rather be skiing or four wheeling somewhere in the mountains of Colorado. Her personality is driven by food, laughter, and jam sessions, and 10/10 times, she’d love to get to know you better but might be awkward while doing it.

My name is Ash, and I’m one of the interns here at the Wesley! I am a junior and a social work major. I am extremely passionate about making this an inclusive space for all students! In my free time, I like to play sports, read, watch Netflix, and go exploring. I also write in my spare time. My favorite genres are fantasy and historical fiction. I am exploring a call to ministry because I want to extend the same light and grace that God has given me over and over again. I pray that They will enable me to make a difference in the Wesley, UNT, and the city of Denton. To contact Ash, email email@example.com
