Meet our 2017-2018 seminary interns!
Part of KUMC’s mission to Feed More Sheep is to provide leadership and training opportunities for seminary students preparing to serve beyond our congregation. Our cohort of seminary interns take on leadership positions within our congregation, opportunities for preaching and leading worship, and meet regularly for theological reflection.
Rachel is a Florida girl, born and raised! She and her husband Jacob grew up near Indian Rocks Beach where they fell in love and share many memories from their years in youth group together. Before arriving in Princeton, Rachel graduated from Flagler College, in North FL, where she studied Religion/Philosophy and Youth Ministry. While studying at the seminary, she will be pursuing ordination with the UMC. She loves dogs, making people laugh, being outdoors, and sharing time with others, gathered around the table (especially when there’s FOOD!)
Ashley grew up in small town in East Texas, and before her time as Princeton Theological Seminary she attended the University of North Texas where she attained her degree in Social Work. Directly following college she served three years in Student Ministry at Coppell United Methodist Church. She is excited to serve alongside those at Kingston United Methodist church and is looking forward to the many things to learn from this community.
