Both the Wesley Foundation and the United Methodist Student Movement offer students opportunities to lead and to follow. We don’t push people into leadership. We let them grow into it.
Liason to Local Churches
Senior, Political Science
Wesley is a senior political science major with a minor in world affairs. He is a 2010 graduate of McNeil High School in Austin, Texas, and is now a full-time resident in Waco. His father is currently the senior pastor at St Philips UMC in Round Rock, and his grandfather was a Methodist preacher as well, so Methodism runs in his blood. He is formerly the youth director at Bruceville-Eddy United Methodist Church, and now serves in the same capacity at China Spring UMC. He is a huge fan of all things Baylor athletics, and is the VP and co-founder of the Block Party, the official student support group for the Baylor women’s basketball team. He’ll gladly talk sports, government, or church all day long, so feel free to contact him with any questions you have at Wesley_Schultz@baylor.edu.

Carlton Metcalf-Doestch, “Chip MD”
Director of Communications, Wesley Foundation
Graduate Student, Mechanical Engineering
Graduated top five and top male from a small country town high school near the Houston area. Came to Baylor for Engineering because of my brother and also that I was “good at math.” Figured I would try the hardest major first, and it was not too hard. I’m academic chair and active member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity – almost as active as I am for the Wesley Foundation. I like to do assignments and study at the Wesley because it is close to Baylor; that is actually why I decided to get so involved. I like the Tuesday night worships for getting me though my first week of college. I like being active in video games including tennis, soccer and basketball, and FPSs, RTS and RPGs (if you’re a gamer you know what those mean ) I’m always open to hearing concerns and helping others figure out ways to resolve their problems, whether in class or in faith. Contact me at Carlton_Metcalf-Doestch@baylor.edu.
Director of Recruitment
Alex is a junior religion major with a concentration in Biblical studies. He graduated from Mount Pisgah Christian School in Johns Creek, Georgia, but currently lives in Miami, Florida when not at Baylor.

He is always looking for a way to serve to advance the kingdom of God. Feel free to contact him with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charlie is a sophomore business major from Plano, Texas. Graduated from Plano Senior High School in 2012, Charlie has a passion for composing music in his spare time. He has written original music for a professional brass ensemble, the Imperial Brass, student media projects, communion services in Plano, and entered several competitions. Not wishing to pursue music as a career, Charlie has found other outlets for his musical side, including leading worship at the Wesley Foundation and participating in Baylor choirs. He is always looking for anyone who wants to join him and Lexy in leading worship. Beyond music, Charlie is always trying to catch on fire with enthusiasm for whatever God has called him to do.

The Rev. Dr. Katie Long
Director, Wesley Foundation
United Methodist Campus Minister
Katie loves being a pastor, especially in the campus setting. One of her particular joys in ministry is helping people listen for God’s calling in their lives. She loves scripture and is interested in ancient traditions of worship, prayer and discipleship. She has done extensive study in Bowen family systems theory, which helps people understand themselves in the context of their family backgrounds. Her wide background in ministry includes hospital chaplaincy and as a pastor in local churches around Texas. Though she graduated (in journalism) from the school in Austin that favors burnt orange, in over five years at Baylor she definitely has warmed to green and gold. Katie loves to garden (when the temperature is below 90 degrees) and to cook. She reads lots of biographies, particularly of American Presidents. She is married to Mike Long, a writer and editor. They have a grown daughter, son-in-law and three certifiably wonderful grandchildren. She recently has started Dawn Breaking, a blog of devotionals especially for people on campus Contact Katie at email@example.com, 254-644-0262 or on Facebook or Twitter.
