The Rev. Sarah Belles joined our team in July 2015. She is a native of Cary, NC where she grew up actively involved in First United Methodist Church of Cary. She graduated from Appalachian State University as a NC Teaching Fellow with a BS in Middle Grades Education. While in Boone, she found a home at ASU’s Wesley Foundation. It was there she fell in love with campus ministry and discerned a call to a life of ordained ministry.
Sarah also holds a Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School. While in divinity school, Sarah served in a range of ministries including an inner city non-profit for women and families in crisis in Nashville, TN; four rural churches in Lilesville, NC; and UNC Chapel Hill’s Wesley Campus Ministry. Her deep passion for campus ministry was enlivened through her studies at Duke and work at UNC. She especially enjoys journeying alongside college students as they discern God’s call upon their lives.
Before serving in Davidson, Sarah served as the Associate Pastor at First United Methodist Church in High Point. She currently serves on the United Methodist Church’s Connectional Table and the General Board of Discipleship’s Division of Ministry with Young People.
