Ashley loves working with young adults, especially in the areas of discovering their God-given passions and what those mean for their lives. She is also seriously invested in race-relations conversations and their intertwining with American Christianity and the Church.

Ashley is a native North Carolinian, grew up in the Free Will Baptist Church, and loves BBQ and the Tarheels. She grew up cooking Sunday lunch with her mom and grandmother and is currently cooking her way through her grandmother’s recipe box as one of her spiritual disciplines. In seminary Ashley became a barista at Small World Coffee and LOVES exploring all of Nashville’s local coffee spots. Ashley has been married to Jake since August 2012. They met doing youth ministry so you’ll probably see Jake around a lot, too. Ashley also serves as the Director of Young Adult Ministry to Couples and Parents.
