Meet our CAmpus Minister

Rev. Ricky Howell


Shawn Howell

Rev. Ricky Howell has been a part of the United Methodist Church for most of his life, but he considers his college years to be the turning point in his faith journey.  While attending the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA, Ricky was asked to help start a Wesley Foundation.  That leadership experience both deepened his faith and helped him to discern a call to pastoral ministry.  After graduating from Duke Divinity School, Ricky has served as a local pastor and ordained elder in the South Carolina Conference since 2005.  He has been the Director and Campus Minister of the Winthrop Wesley Foundation since 2012.


Ricky has a wife, Shawn and two children, Ethan and Finley.
