WHAT IS THE WESLEY CLUB?
Open and affirming of LGBTQIA people, The Wesley Club is committed to exploring questions of faith, justice, and community. As a student run organization, we partner together to develop richer senses of self in community, deeper relationships with God, and more active lives of justice.
Associate Campus Minister
I am excited to get to know Wesley Club this year as the Associate Campus Minister. I grew up mostly in Fresno, CA and moved to Seattle to go to Seattle Pacific University. I have since graduated and am now almost done getting a Masters of Divinity at Seattle University. When not studying or hanging out at Wesley Club, I am often outside, either hiking, biking, cross-country skiing or simply sitting outside reading. People who know me, know that I love going out to coffee with people and sharing about life and our stories. I feel most welcomed by others when I am invited to join conversations, especially when in a new space. My hope for Wesley Club this year is to welcome more SPU students to the wonderful Wesley community.
Director of Empathy Dopeness
Hi! I use he/him/his pronouns. I’m in my third year as a Master of Divinity student at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I was born and raised in Springfield, Oregon before moving up north for graduate school. After I finish school (but will I ever???) I hope to teach and write about christian mysticism and queer theology from an asexual perspective. In my spare time, I enjoy singing and playing guitar, keeping up with pop culture, and reading. My hope for my first year on staff at Wesley is to encourage, empower, and advocate for folks to believe in their worth and gifts. People who really know me, know that I never stop asking questions. I feel most welcomed by others when we’re able to move beyond small talk and be genuinely curious about one another.
