Meet Our Staff



What’s up everybody? My name is Wade Langer, the pastor of the University of Alabama Wesley Foundation. I received a BA in Religion from Birmingham-Southern College, an MDiv from Candler School of Theology at Emory University, and a DMin from Asbury University (my dissertation was on Judeo-Christian Kingship through Final Fantasy XV, a video game… ask me about it if you want to know more!). I am also on the Honors College HYO teaching team so maybe you’ll see me around campus. In any case, I want to personally invite you to join us at Bama Wesley— whether it’s your first time or your first time in a long time, we’re excited to see you! (As are my dogs, Fischer and Daisy!)


Fellowship Intern

Hey y’all! My name is Jim Lindsay, and I am from the lovely city of Demopolis, Alabama. I am a junior majoring in Finance and Accounting and minoring in Actuarial Science and Mathematics. My experience at Bama Wesley has been nothing short of amazing. I have made innumerable friendships and memories, grown closer to God, and found a loving Christian community all in one place. Whether you’re looking for a place to worship or destress, Wesley is a place for all people. Bama Wesley has a fantastic culture of closeness, positivity, and having a good time.


Discipleship Intern

Hello everyone! My name is Joshua Burnham, and I am honored to be your Discipleship Intern for the 2024 calendar year. I am a Junior from Mobile, Alabama majoring in both Accounting and Finance. I play the snare drum in the Million Dollar Band and love cheering the tide on Saturdays. Bama Wesley is a special place to me as it is where I have found community, especially with those of similar beliefs and values as me. I love getting to serve here at Wesley, whether it be through playing the drums on Wednesday Nights or chalking for our weekly services. One thing that makes Wesley special and unique is that we are a place for “all people.” Our theology of inclusivity sets us apart from other campus ministries around campus.


Worship Intern

Hey everyone, my name is Sara Lowery and I’m the Worship Intern here at Bama Wesley! Wesley has been an important part of my college journey, and I am blessed to find myself where I am today. One thing I love about Wesley is that we find ways to get everybody involved in some capacity, and through that I have built Christ-like friendships that will last forever. I have found opportunities to serve, a community that feels like family, and a place that truly accepts all those who walk through the doors. I’m looking forward to serving the Wesley family this next year by glorifying God’s name through worship with them!


Evangelism Intern

Hello! I’m Sarah Bates, and this year I am the Evangelism Intern! I am from Huntsville, Alabama, and I’m a sophomore majoring in Creative Media. The minute I came to Bama Wesley I knew I had found a place that would be my home away from home, while also being somewhere I could grow in my faith. Since my first visit, I have made so many amazing memories and friendships here because of our shared passion for serving our Lord. Bama Wesley is open to anyone, and we’re always excited to meet new people!  


Ministry Intern

Hey y’all! My name is Tyler, and I’ll be the Ministry Intern this year. I’m a junior from Colorado majoring in Microbiology. I love anything outdoors, and I’m always happy to chat about sports, the gospel, or just life! Bama Wesley means so much to me and has been an integral part in bringing me to Christ and helping me to find my faith family. I really love that everyone is so welcoming here. Whether you’ve been Methodist your whole life, are a devout Catholic, or have never been to church before, there’s a place here for you.
