I am pleased to announce that Ms. Julie Walker has accepted the invitation to come and serve as our new campus minister at the Wesley Foundation at San Diego State University. She will serve as a lay person assigned as she completes her process towards ordained ministry.
Ms. Walker has a passion for ministry with young people that is grounded in her own experience of the grace of God. As a younger leader among us, she understands the faith challenges that young adults encounter as well as their yearning for a loving relationship with God and others. Her deep desire to help young people and others be followers of Jesus will bless the community at San Diego State University and all of us in the California-Pacific Conference family.
Ms. Walker earned a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Asbury Theological Seminary (Wilmore, Kentucky) and has previously served on the staff of the Wesley Foundation at the University of Kentucky as well as at Florida International University.
I am grateful for Rev. Dr. Beth Cooper’s many years of service as campus minister at San Diego State University, and now thankful for our sister Julie as she begins her ministry.
