youth ministers

Ashley Fahey is a Youth Services Librarian at Douglas County Libraries in Parker.  She earned her Bachelor’s in Humanities-Classics from Ohio Wesleyan University, and her Master’s of Library and Information Science from Kent State University.  An Ohio native through and through.  She also volunteers at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center in Castle Rock.  She holds sound beliefs that kids have the power to change the world, and works to empowering youth to believe in themselves and achieve their own goals.  In her spare time, she enjoys reading, kickboxing, jogging, crocheting, and spending time with her dog, Rosie, friends, family, and her husband, Brian.

Brian Fahey is a Quantitative Data Analyst, working with a family-operated business that helps to measure the impact of predominantly non-profit organizations (QREM).  He holds two Master’s degrees – Educational Measurement and Statistics from the University of Iowa, and a degree in Student Affairs from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS).  He met Ashley at Ohio Wesleyan University while studying history.  He strongly believes in empowering youth so they are able to achieve their own goals, very much like Ashley.  Brian also sings for the church choir and is highly involved in his Toastmasters Club, while swimming competitively on a master’s swim team.  He also enjoys spending time with friends, family, Rosie, and his wife, Ashley.

Rosie is the canine member of the youth ministry team.  Her main activities involve begging for treats, going on long hikes, and protecting the back yard from either squirrels or leaves.  While she is friendly, she recognizes that not all people can be near her due to allergies, and she will not approach you.  But she will enjoy pets from you if you come up to her.


what is the ucc?


The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action.  With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world.  The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where "…they may all be one" (John 17:21).


The Church of Firsts

Since 1957, the United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. Together, we live out our faith in ways that effect change in our communities.  The UCC's many "firsts" mean that we have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith.  When we read in Galatians: "There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus"—a demand is made upon us. And so we were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.


A Church of Extravagant Welcome

Today, we continue to change lives throughout the world. We work alongside more than 200 mission partners. We labor ceaselessly to fight injustice, in the United States and abroad. We instill our vision into our youth and young adults, forging leaders who will imagine new dreams. And we sustain and develop church leaders, pastors, and our local churches to live their faith in exciting new ways.  We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive.  We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul.


We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and where together, we grow a just and peaceful world.
