Jackie Bolden – Director

A Haywood County, NC resident, Jackie has spent over two decades leading non-profit organizations in the area. As the Executive Director of Folkmoot, she oversaw the festival’s growth and expansion, enabling it to become NC’s largest folk festival.

A lifelong United Methodist, Jackie has also worked as a Coordinator and Trainer for the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) Disaster Response Program.

“I am excited to be involved with the World Methodist Council and to be helping the World Methodist Museum reach out to a larger audience in the region and the world. I think that the Friends of the World Methodist Museum is the perfect organization to work alongside us as we work to achieve these goals,” said Bolden.
