Ashton is coming from First Baptist Church Heavener, Oklahoma, where he has served as student pastor for nearly two years. He is married to his high school sweetheart and ministry helper, Jaxi.
Not long after giving his life to the Lord, Ashton felt God calling him into vocational ministry to invest in students and walk with them as they follow the Lord. Ashton’s ministry philosophy is to develop students by teaching them the Word; challenging them to do what the Word says; and to live the Word daily for God’s glory. Ashton graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Communication from the University of Arkansas and is currently enrolled in the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
