Haley Feuerbacher

We welcome Haley Feuerbacher starting July 1 as the Director of The Denton Wesley Foundation. Haley has felt a persistent calling to college-campus ministries since her days as an undergraduate active in Baylor University's campus ministries. After Baylor, Haley earned a Masters in Theological Studies from Brite Divinity School and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Religious and Culture at SMU, where she has also taught in the Women's and Gender Studies Program. As a student, minister, and activist, Haley has received several awards for her service and grants for her work for women's rights in South Africa. Over the past few years, in addition to teaching, writing, and serving in vocational ministry, Haley has co-founded a grassroots movement called Christianity Is a Verb that seeks to encourage the marriage of faith and activism. Haley is most passionate about discovering the Divine in the voices, stories, and struggles that often get marginalized, forming self-giving and mutual relationships, helping young people find their voice to speak truth to power and grace to others, and working together to carry and transform each other's messes and the messes of this world as Christ's hands and feet. She is blessed to "explore the Infinite Abyss" of life with her son Christian and husband SB, and she is ineffably grateful and excited for this adventure with the Wesley Foundation!

Baylee Davis

Student Minister

Baylee is exceptionally grateful and excited for the opportunity to be student minister at the Wesley! This will be her second year at UNT, but by credits, she's a junior. Baylee is majoring in Psychology and minoring in Psychology and minoring in Theatre. She's been active in her home church in Granbury for seven years serving on mission trips, as part of the youth council, as youth praise band leader, and as a member of the church praise band. Her favorite part of the  Wesley, and something she hopes to grow in the coming year, is the sense of community and welcome it has for people of all backgrounds. Outside of church, Baylee has dedicated a large part of her life to performing in lotsa shows and singing in various choirs. She loves Dr Pepper and Whataburger probably more than anyone you've met so far, and would usually rather be skiing or four wheeling somewhere in the mountains of Colorado. Her personality is driven by food, laughter, and jam sessions, and 10/10 times, she'd love to get to know you better but might be awkward while doing it.
