The Youth Director’s mission is to help teens grow up in Christ. My hope is to introduce kids to the Good News that Jesus is the King of the world and walk with them as we bring our lives under his rule and reign. I’m privileged to lead and teach in our Sunday youth gatherings (Encounter and Sunday Night Live), create opportunities for local service, mission trips, spiritual retreats and fun events, and connect students with adults who can mentor them as they walk with Christ.
I also oversee the Open Lounge ministry that welcomes youth from our neighborhood into the church each Wednesday afternoon. I enjoy engaging in conversation with these kids, many of whom are hungry for spiritual truth. I also enjoy coaching many of them on our church league basketball team.
