Our Team

CCM is made up of a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers who are committed to following God and sharing the joy of the Catholic Faith!

Campus Minister

The campus minister is here as a support staff for students. He is happy to help you, and is a great resource for faith questions. Feel free to stop by the CCM House during the week and just chat.

Marcus Ayers


Marcus grew up Catholic in Salem, Oregon. He came to CWU in 2005 to receive degrees in history and geography. During this time he got confirmed at CCM in 2010. After graduation, Marcus got married and moved to Olympia to be with his wife, Emily.


After three years away, he was drawn back to campus ministry at CWU in 2015. Returning to CCM has been a blessing for Marcus and his family. They love to serve the students of Central and push them to be active Catholics in their community.

Marcus recently completed a Master's degree in Theology from the University of Notre Dame. He is very excited to share what he has learned with the students at CCM.
