Leadership

Rachel Vankirk Mathews – Associate Pastor of Youth, Young Adults and Social Justice

Rachel is excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead and love the youth and young adults of Maxwell Street and to follow the ever-beckoning voice of the Holy Spirit forward with the whole congregation and its community in God’s work towards a more just and loving world. Assisting Rachel are two interns this winter: Caroline Copley and Dany Vissing. Thank you, Madison for your leadership in the fall!

While Rachel is on Maternity Leave
Caroline Copley (right) will serve as Interim Youth Director!
 Caroline grew up at Maxwell Street, is currently working towards her Masters in Music Therapy, and served as Director at Burnamwood Camp over the previous summer prior to being a counselor in summer’s past. Caroline is very skilled at working with youth, creating fun and engaging programs, building relationships and providing care. I’m incredibly grateful Caroline is leading our youth program over the next two months! Caroline will run the weekly Youth Group programs, Sunday school, Wednesday night Middle School small group, and send the weekly youth email. Feel free to reach out to her with any questions. Contact Caroline. Responses to the youth email will also go to her email.
Dany Vissing (below) will continue to serve as Youth Intern!Dany grew up at Second Presbyterian and has been an intern with our youth since the beginning of this school year. She is working towards an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and worked as a counselor at Burnamwood Camp this past summer! Dany knows our youth at Maxwell Street very well and is great at making our activities for them fun and engaging while making them to feel welcome week to week. We’re so glad Dany will be here, working with Caroline over the next two months!

Finally, Will Burchfield and Colyn Clarke have volunteered to support the youth at each activity over the next two months. 

           

Thank you to these four for leading the youth program!
