I am very excited to announce that Kat Bair will be joining our FUMCFW Youth Ministries team this summer! Thanks to all of you who put in the hard work to help get her here. Kat is going to be such an excellent addition to our team and our church, and we are ready for her to be here. Her official visit date will be on Sunday, July 10, and her start date is the following Monday, July 11!
Kat grew up in the First Presbyterian Church of Nashville, meaning she knows what good large church youth ministry looks like. She is an incredibly intelligent young woman with a B.A. in Political Science and an M.A. in Comparative Politics from the University of Miami Ohio. Kat heard God’s call on her life to pursue youth ministry instead of politics and began to do that through multiple avenues in both church youth ministry internships as well as youth mission internships, including missions in Asia. Kat and her husband, Andrew, live in Grapevine.
Over the next three years Kat will be making her way through the Center for Youth Ministry Training (CYMT), the same organization where I received my training, to get her theological education and practical training. Our church will benefit greatly from this partnership with CYMT and with Kat as a part of our youth ministry team. Again, thank you all for your work in this matter, and let’s get ready to welcome Kat as our new Associate Director of Youth Ministries!
Grace and Peace,
Director of Youth Ministries
