Joseph and Family


Rev. Joseph McBrayer, Director & Campus Minister

I’m in my 8th year as the United Methodist Campus Minister at Emory University. I’m an ordained deacon in the North Ga UMC and I have a Forestry Degree from Auburn University, an Master of Divinity from Candler School of Theology, and am in my final year of a Doctor of Ministry at Emory University. I enjoy music, technology, photography/video, and learning.

My family and I have lived near Emory for the past 10 years. My spouse is a social worker  with Refugees and we are parents to a beautiful baby girl named Ali.  I write sometimes at and you can find me on Facebook, on twitter @jmcbray, email me at, call 404.727.6278 (office), or drop by my office for a cup of coffee.

Jason Grubbs, Ministry Intern
I am currently a second year MDiv student at Candler School of Theology. I graduated from Louisiana State University in 2014 with a degree in religious studies and psychology. While at LSU, I was involved in the LSU Wesley Foundation and served as a ministry intern during the 2014-2015 school year. In my free time, I enjoy traveling and exploring Atlanta with my wife, Kelly. I am excited to learn new things this year and take part in the community at the Emory Wesley Fellowship!
