Natalie Aho

Natalie Aho has been named the first Program Manager of Baptist Commons at Wake Forest University School of Divinity.

The Baptist Commons forms students, engages alumni, and cultivates relationships with supporters to deepen the distinct Baptist heritage of the School of Divinity’s ecumenical learning community. The program fosters networking, vocational formation, and peer learning and support between constituencies directly connected with the School and partners from the wider Baptist community. Aho will serve as the strategic liaison between the School of Divinity, its Baptist students and alumni and the Baptist community, with particular attention to North Carolina, to plan and execute high-touch events, strategic engagement and stewardship steps.

She joins the School of Divinity from Baptist News Global as Director of Engagement and Annual Giving where she developed communication, marketing and fundraising strategies and planned donor-focused events. As a lifelong Baptist raised in Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF) churches and founding member of University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, Aho has worked for and with Baptists for most of her career.
