AMBER HOUSTON

Campus Minister

Amber Houston, Associate Director of Outreach and Women’s Ministry at USM Wesley and recent graduate of the Master of Counseling Psychology program at USM is originally from Greene County. She transferred from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to complete her undergraduate degree in psychology at USM. The summer after graduation, she came back to Christ and started walking out her faith. During her time in graduate school, she led an independent Bible study and organized various community outreach projects. It was then that she realized she had a passion for outreach and working with college students and young adults, and she felt called into campus ministry. While working with residents at Clearview during her internship, she also found she had a heart for working with women in particular.
