Youth workers are the heartbeat of our youth ministry! Adults of all ages and backgrounds give their time and energy out of a sincere desire to connect teenagers to the life-changing love of Jesus Christ. Whether you are returning to our team or considering joining it for the first time, there is a place for you. If you’re ready to get started, complete the form below and we will be in touch soon. Current youth workers should scroll to the bottom of this page for a schedule of upcoming meetings. For more information, contact Brett Foster (bfoster@firstumc.org) or Natalie Faria (nfaria@firstumc.org) or the Youth Office at 863-687-9750.
