Ashley Holmes

Children's Minister

            Children’s Ministry is such a vital part of the life of the Church. Statistics show that 64% of people become Christians before the age of 18, and nothing beats seeing “child-like faith” up close and personal. Ashley has always had a heart for children, and God has continued to bless her ministry wherever He has led. At Auburn, Ashley’s responsibilities include direct involvement with K5-5th grade, as well as administrative responsibilities for Preschool. We are always excited to see what the Lord is doing in the life of our children!
            Ashley grew up in ministry, as her dad has been a minister her entire life. Her parents, David and Melanie, currently live in Decatur, AL where David serves as the Minster of Music at Central Park Baptist Church and Melanie is a home health aide. She has one sibling, Drew, who is a pharmacist at the University of Kansas Health System. Drew is married to Ashley (Kwasigroh), who is also a Pharmacist for Saint Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City.
            Ashley loves all things crafty, movies, and music. Music is always playing in her home and also in her office! She enjoys shopping, organizing, and traveling. Ashley enjoys playing and coaching volleyball, as well as spending as much time with her friends as possible. She also loves hanging out at home with her dog, Molly Belle.
            B.S. Communication with a concentration in Journalism and Public Relations and a minor in Vocal Performance from the University of Mobile in Mobile, Alabama
