 Jackson State Wesley: Meet Our Advisor

We are empowering students to build faith that transforms communities.

Reverend Maxine Bolden

Wesley Foundation Campus Minister and Director

Pastor Bolden moves people "from religion to relationship with Christ." As the Campus Minister that means helping students move from just "following the rules (of church)" to living into the loving grace of a relationship with Jesus Christ. 

How do we get there? Through discipleship, prayer, Bible study, praise, worship, fellowship,  and service to others. 


Pastor Bolden is ordained an elder in the United Methodist Church, has served two churches as senior pastor and served as a Veterans Affairs  chaplain resident. She is also a spiritual director and serves the Church in various  roles. 

Pastor Bolden earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tougaloo College in Jackson MS, and a Master of Divinity at Gammon Theological Seminary/ITC in Atlanta GA. 


Pastor Maxine Bolden is married to Michael, her husband and best friend, of over 28 years after meeting at Tougaloo College. She is a mother, friend, mentor, "Mimi" and pastor to their two adult children, daughter-in-law and grandson. She enjoys reading, writing, and decorating, and hanging with Tobby and Bella, the family dogs.


Romans 8:28 summarizes Pastor Bolden's life: Whether things are good or bad, "we know that God is working all things together for our good because we love God and he has called us according to his purpose." In other words, God is working on our behalf so it's ALL GOOD!!! Be encouraged.
