Ashley Jenkins

    Our Pastor

    Hi! I am Ashley!
    I'm a Christian, mom, wife, pastor, dog mom, painter, and foodie!  My favorite Bible verses are Psalm 46:10 and Psalm 118:24.  

    I am a native Georgian. I grew up in Duluth, GA and loved my home church – Duluth UMC. I attended LaGrange College where I met my husband, Trey. After undergraduate I attended Emory’s Candler School of Theology where I received my Masters of Divinity. In addition, I received a Women in Theology and Ministry certificate.

    I have enjoyed serving the church and beyond in several positions. I twice served as a summer missionary in Zambia and have served as the young adult chairperson for North Georgia Conference.

    I was the chair of the District Committee on Ordained Ministry (DCOM). Previous pastoral positions have been North Georgia United Methodist Conference: Office of Ministerial Services and Dunwoody UMC. While in seminary I served as a youth director.

    My passions include my faith, preaching, art, and missions. I love creating paintings based on scripture verses and devotionals. I consider myself a big foodie and love to enjoy good fellowship around a table.

    My husband Trey is the Medication Safety Officer for Wellstar Healthcare system. We have a fun little boy named William. William loves dinosaurs, Paw Patrol, playing, and swimming. We love taking our two Shih Tzus (Jesse and Tucker) on walks.
