Campus Minister

Hi, I am Rev. Jessica Dayson!

I came to UNC Asheville in July 2015 as the new campus minister. I attended Duke Divinity School and I am an ordained elder in the Western NC Conference of the United Methodist Church. I love the mountains, coffee, baking, chocolate and binge watching Netflix.  My husband, Darryl,  is also a pastor and we have a son named Malachi.

I would love to get to know you!

Feel free to call or text me at 828-458-8848 or email me at

I️ consider Asheville Wesley to be my church and my home away from home. I️ love the organization, the ministry and fellowship that we have.
