Ashley Hicks

founder, pinc ministries

Ashley felt called to ministry in her early 20's with a passion specifically for teen girls on the subject of purity. Since 1997, she has been working with teenage girls in various ways such as cheerleading, teaching in public schools, and Christian counseling. Ashley believes her experiences with girls in this arena has been invaluable in understanding the pressures that girls face today and what tools they need to be successful, productive young women.


In the summer of 2003, Ashley felt God calling her to focus on a ministry that was specifically for girls and by September, PINC was created!  In 2003, she founded PINC Ministries (Purity & Identity in Christ) and began booking events with churches and local non profit organizations. Over the years, she became a sought after keynote speaker for girls events around the country. Ten years later, with the news of her second pregnancy, Ashley felt the Lord guiding her to step back from traveling and just make her greatest ministry within her home as a mama and wife.  


Fast forward to 2020, during the pandemic we all found ourselves in... the Lord reignited a desire to pursue ministry again, but in a different way.  With her own daughter, using social media outlets so she can continue to keep family her number one priority!  Her heart for ministry has shifted from a focus on teens to relating to the challenges of raising an elementary age daughter in today's world and addressing issues such as knowing your worth in Christ, friendships, modesty, and growing in relationship with Jesus.  


Ashley has a Bachelors in Christian Counseling and a Masters Degree in Human Services Counseling, is the author of THINK PINC (a Bible Study for teen girls), and has been featured in Charisma magazine, interviewed on several radio shows and featured on a few Christian TV shows including The Joni Show and Friends & Neighbors.  She has also had the privilege of writing for numerous Lifeway youth resources.  However, she is the most proud of her job as mama to Kash and Addy. She is married to her forever crush, Kory and they live in Texas where the weather is crazy, the hair is big, the food is good, and the tea is sweet!
