Ashley Higgins joined the First Presbyterian Church staff as Director of Young Adult Ministries in August 2014. She is a graduate of The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where she majored in Anthropology.

Prior to seminary, Ashley served on staff at the Chapel Hill Bible Church and in an interim ministry position on the staff of Stoney Creek Church in North Carolina. Ashley loves working with young adults, especially in the areas of discovering their God-given passions and what those mean for their and their family’s lives. She is also seriously invested in race-relations conversations and their intertwining with American Christianity and the Church.

Ashley is a native North Carolinian, grew up in the Free Will Baptist Church, and loves BBQ and the Tarheels. In seminary Ashley became a barista at Small World Coffee in New Jersey and loves exploring all of Nashville’s local coffee spots.
