Julie Ayala

Soul Care Minister


The Lord rescued and adopted me at the young age of six, having heard the good news both from my parents and at church since birth. From then until now, my understanding continues to grow that through Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection three days later He offers me forgiveness of my sins, a personal relationship with Him and enjoyment of Him forever. Brokenness in my earthly circumstances, specifically my marriage, exposed my heart-roots of trusting in man and living for myself more often than not. But He has been gracious to use that brokenness to mature my faith, to cause me to depend on Him more, to reveal sin in my life, to show me that Christ is enough, to equip me to comfort others and to shape me more into Christ likeness.
I was rooted in another church in the DFW area serving and leading in their biblical counseling ministry and working in corporate America when I felt the Lord leading me to pursue more education and biblical counseling in a full-time capacity. The Lord brought me to Soul Care to do my practicum for graduate school after which they hired me full time.


My parents, siblings, nieces and nephews all live in Wichita Falls were I was raised. I enjoy visiting them and spending time at the lake together. I enjoy the great outdoors, the warmth of the sun, long walks or runs with friends, having guests around the dinner table, singing and listening to music.
