In September 2016 Ashley was ordained as an elder and pastor of New Song. He has a degree in Bible and Biblical Languages from Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. Ashley serves the church as a “bi-vocational” elder, meaning that his day job is in IT, and the evenings and weekends are for church work. He has been in the Church since he was two weeks old, and he has been a worship leader for 20 years. In addition to pastoring and leading worship, Ashley oversees the music and technology areas of ministry. When not at work or church Ashley enjoys spending time with his family and his hobby of astrophotography.
