Meet Katherine & Youth Interns

Katherine Norwood – Director of Youth Ministry

Katherine is back at MSPC! You might recognize her from her work with our college students two years ago. Katherine is in her third (and final) year of seminary at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary where she is pursuing a Masters of Divinity. She is originally from Arkansas where she did her undergraduate studies at the University of Arkansas (woo pig sooie!). She served as a Young Adult Volunteer of the PCUSA in New Orleans where she worked doing education and communications about the disappearing coast of Louisiana. When she’s not at MSPC, you might find her doing yoga, baking, enjoying the outdoors, crafting, or hanging out with her fiancé, John Kupar.

Lauren Gilbert is back after a semester in Israel for her senior year at Transylvania University.

David Ehlert is back too after a summer of fun at Camp Burnamwood. He is in his junior year at UK.

Claire Roberts to the Youth Team. Claire transferred to UK for her junior year and is looking forward to her first year as a Youth Intern.


Thank you to all those who helped collect donations for UK games.  The youth will benefit greatly from the donations to their mission trip.

The youth will be hiking at Raven Run (weather permitting). We plan to leave the church at 12:30pm and return at 3pm. Bring a change of clothes and hiking
