YOUTH MINISTRY STAFF
Bekah joined the youth staff in May 2017 as a 2 year intern after graduating from the greatest university in the world (Go Tigers!). Bekah currently serves as Jr. High Director and is passionate about helping students understand more about who God is. Some of Bekah's favorite parts of her job include meeting with students through journey groups, Jr. High Night and getting to lead alongside some rock star high school leaders!
Bekah loves coffee, crafternoons and baking and most days in her off time, she can be found at one of the 500 local coffee shops hanging out with friends or grabbing an Oat Milk latte to go.
Andrew joined the youth staff in May 2017 as a 2 year intern upon graduating from Clemson University. In April 2019 he moved into the role of Assistant Jr. High Director, working closely with Bekah to minister to the 5th - 8th grade boys, high school leadership teams, and more! He and his beautiful wife Elleson have been married 3 years and just celebrated the birth of their first born son, Wyatt Thomas in April 2021!
Andrew enjoys working out, binge watching TV shows that no one has ever heard of and playing basketball.
Jacob joined the youth staff in September 2020 after graduating with his Masters in Divinity from Covenant Seminary. He is a St. Louis native, where he and his wife Kaitlyn married. Whether it is playing soccer or foosball, connecting over a good book, or having a lively discussion on theology, Jacob loves helping people see the love of Christ more fully in their lives. He is pumped to build relationships with the students and families at Mitchell Road and be a part of Christ's work in his church.
Debbie joined the youth staff in July 2013 after serving in a similar role in a local church for 13 years. She has 3 adult children plus a beautiful new daughter-in-law. Debbie loves the beach, traveling when the opportunity arises and watching college football on Saturday afternoons!
Debbie is thankful to have a behind the scenes view of what happens within the ministry and enjoys her support role on the youth staff. She considers it a blessing to get to know the families and is encouraged to see students learn and grow in their knowledge and walk with the Lord.
We are so excited to announce that Chrissy Hager will be joining the Youth Staff as a 2 Year Intern beginning November 29th!
