Maddi Baugous, Pastoral Intern
Maddi grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska and graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University. In May of 2020, she graduated from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary with her MDiv. She has worked with and served as Co-Director of Micah Corps where she developed a passion for social justice, and encouraging college students in their faith and justice work. Maddi is working through the process of ordination in the UMC as an elder. Because Maddi is yet to be ordained, her role for now is pastoral Intern. She will assist in pastoral duties, oversee Mercy and Justice activities, and supervise and lead the confirmation class. We hope that our relationship will prove to be mutually enriching, and that Maddi will remain a part of First Church through her ordination and beyond. Maddi is passionate about the Hebrew Bible, especially the Prophets, and how they can be used for justice in the world. In her free time, Maddi loves decorating her planner, journaling, and playing board games with friends.
