Matt Ashburn


member since 2018

Rev. Matt Ashburn is beginning his first year on the Wesley Board. Matt is a 2004 graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill where he majored in Religious Studies and minored in English. He then earned an M.Div from Duke and is an ordained elder in the North Carolina Conference. In his years of ministry, he has served as an associate pastor and a hospital chaplain. Currently, Matt is on family leave as a full-time stay-at-home dad. He lives in Raleigh with his wife and their two daughters. He enjoys good music, great food, and following UNC sports. Matt is excited to be on the Board for Wesley Campus Ministry, because he knows how influential and formative the college years are in a student’s life. He believes that the intense intellectual growth that Wesley students experience at UNC can—and should—be mirrored by a spiritual growth in the knowledge and love of God.
