Oxford University United Methodist Church is home to me. Through happy times and sad times, it has been my rock. I feel that I belong here.

He likes working on a daily basis as part of a team with our church staff and leadership and also enjoys working on the complex challenges entailed in ensuring that OU continues to grow and thrive as an anchor institution in our community. Chris likes to ride his bike, attend SEC sporting events, hang out in the backyard with his family (and dog), and listen to music!

Administrative Assistant to the Lead PastorEmilie serves as the Administrative Assistant to the Lead Pastor. She says she likes having a supporting role on staff because she’s not interested in being out front “at all.” She likes being in the background doing whatever she can to make sure our worship services, programs, and events run as smoothly as possible. Emilie’s favorite part of the job is sharing the load with some of the best people she knows: the OU staff. Her hobbies and interests include baking, walking her dog, and listening to music and podcasts. The OU staff says she makes some of the best cookies in town!
