Children and Youth - Youth Ministry Leader / Church School Teacher

Barb is our senior youth group leader.  She found her way to St. Andrew’s-Wesley through the Parent and Tot group.  She has taken the BC Conference Youth Ministry Certificate Program, hoping this would lead to a position working with youth within the context of a church and a congregation.  She has been attending St. Andrew’s-Wesley for six years, and has been a member for three years, transferring her membership from First United in White Rock.

She is looking forward to the 2016/17 year.  As senior youth group leader and Sunday Club leader in the youth classroom, Barb hopes to build community and create connection to our inner selves, each other, our church community and God.  She read a quote recently that “Church is not something that you go to, it is a family you belong to”.  Barb feels youth are such a vibrant, passion filed, enthusiastic part of our lives and church family, that she hopes to allow them to express themselves in a safe, judgement free zone and at the same time, journey with them witnessing, growing, learning, teaching and inspiring wherever they go.
