Jessica Lewis '07

 Jessica Lewis, Class of "07,  started at MC in the Fall of 2003 and graduated with a BA in Biology in May 2007. Some of her favorite memories as a student involved making lifelong friends and connecting with her caring professors who shared their passion for learning. She said she always felt at home and welcomed in the CCM during chapel services. She was very involved in campus ministry during her time at MC, and she even served as a student chaplain for a couple years. Jessica never imagined herself working in ministry when she first started at MC, but it definitely influenced her career today.

Jessica currently lives in Maryville with her husband, Josh, and their three sons. She is the Program Director for MAST (Maryville Adventures in Studying Theology) at Maryville College and has been serving in this role since February 2022. She said it is wonderful to be back on campus as a staff member. Through this program, she works with campus ministry, coordinates youth events with the Presbytery of East Tennessee, and leads Expanding Horizons.

In addition to this, Jessica is finishing her studies through the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary and will receive her Master of Divinity this fall. This summer she has also been preaching at Farragut Presbyterian Church while their pastor is on sabbatical 

She would love for Maryville to continue to be a place built around community and the liberal arts. She prays that it is a place for students to ask big questions of life and faith in a space that is safe, welcoming, and inviting. Jessica hopes that it will always be a place that she is proud to call her second home.
