Our Youth Ministers... Tracy Ward & Caleb Younse
We're excited about our excellent Youth Ministry Team - Tracy Ward and Caleb Younse - who work hard to lead our youth to greater things in the Lord.
Tracy grew up in this church in our youth group. She now has a married daughter and a son in college, and she holds the B.A. degree in social work from University of Louisiana at Monroe. She serves as a full-time social worker at a local hospital.
Caleb also spent time here in our youth group and is working on a ministry degree from Whitfield College while serving here as one of our Youth Ministers. He also works as warehouse manager for a building supply company in our area.
We're thrilled to have these mature, capable leaders working in our youth program.
