Hey Everyone, My name is Shelley Smeltzer, and I am one of seven leaders who make up the youth ministry team for NPCOB. All of us have huge hearts for youth and truly enjoy our time with them…so much so that I even mattress-surfed down a stairway! As leaders, we have a strong desire for youth to know Jesus as their personal savior and to grow in their wisdom and knowledge of God through scripture, prayer, worship, and community. We practice these first in our own lives and encourage the youth to do the same by providing a safe environment where the youth can have fun, participate in monthly service projects, mission trips, retreats, and, most importantly, dive into the word of God. My role on the team is coordinating activities and events, communicating and building relationships with parents, and being present for the youth. If anyone has a question about our group or activities or has a service project idea, please give me a call, and I will be glad to listen.
