Harley Mathews
Pastoral Intern
 

Harley, along with his wife Amanda, are long-time members of St. John’s UMC. He has recently graduated from Texas A&M with a BA- History and minor in Religious Studies. His plans for Fall 2021 is to attend seminary while pursuing candidacy in the United Methodist tradition. Harley has over 13 years of weekly tactile ministry experience and has been a key leader and regular preacher at the Thy Kingdom Come (TKC) heavy worship service here at St. John’s for many years.

As a primary focus Harley desires to grow St. John’s into its new vision and its overall life work. This means especially reaching out to the neighborhood college students and families. Harley is particularly gifted in creating and hosting spiritual formation events. The method of this includes integrating experiential contemplative work for small groups of members and non-members. He will continue to engage and participate in TKC and other services
