“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12

Youth Ministry at a Glance

MEET THE YOUTH MINISTER
Hey there - I'm so blessed to be in ministry here at my home parish! I'm a St. Chris alum,  born and raised right here in Vandalia, where I now live with my big-ol' fam of five loud and crazy kids (4 girls and 1 boy), my hubby (my buddy, my pal, and our ring-leader), one flabby lab, and two cool cats...it's quite the crew 🙂 I am so incredibly in love with Jesus and the way that He has impacted my life: pursued me, called me, and transformed me ... time and time again! It's a love I am so excited to share with your teens...and that's really my approach in ministry: "I've got a BEST friend, a TRUE friend in Jesus...allow me to introduce Him to you"  OR "Oh my gosh, you know Him too - so let's talk!!!" LOL - So I love to have fun...and even more so, fun in and with the Lord and all my lil' bros/sisters he's blessed me with through ministry. 🙂
