Well, this announcement has been a long time coming, but I am so excited to introduce you to the newest member of the FUMC Fort Worth Youth Ministries family, Matt Britt! Starting tomorrow, May 1, Matt will begin his role as Associate Director of Youth Ministries.
Matt, and his wife, Alex, moved to the DFW area around 6 months ago from South Dakota where they are both from. Matt grew up highly involved in the Methodist church as a student leader in the Dakotas annual conference and studied Christian Leadership at Dakota Wesleyan University. He has a background in leading worship and church planting, as well as, of course, youth and student ministries.
Personally, Matt’s interests include guitar, classic video games, hockey, basketball, hiking and camping, and Star Wars (come check out the Millennium Falcon and Storm Trooper helmet in his office . . .).
You may have seen Matt and Alex at The Gathering over the past several months, where they have quickly found a worshipping community that feels like home. We are delighted to have them both as part of the First Church community and are so excited for Matt to begin his ministry here.
We encourage all of you to come meet him this weekend! He’ll be introducing himself at Sunday school and will be joining us for Youth Banquet. Come give him a Texas-sized welcome and join with me in celebrating the beginning of a new chapter for us and for Matt!
