Our Youth Leaders
Our youth leaders are committed individuals dedicated to working with our church
youth to bring them closer in fellowship with each other and also help them
become shining examples of Christ to the communities we serve.
Amber Medlin Keever I serve as a Youth Advisor for the middle school Lifeline group. I also work as a Litigation Consultant for Sedgwick CMS. I have two children, Finley and Minor. Finley is in 1st grade and Minor is in 7th grade and he actively participates in Lifeline. Along with my husband, Daniel, we enjoy volunteering with our children’s activities, traveling and exercising.
Jennifer & Jeff Nelson I am married to Jeff and a mom to three kids, Kate, Caroline, and Griffin. I just recently returned to work as a preschool teacher after staying home for 13 years. Previously, I worked as a social worker in mental health, foster care, and at a shelter for women. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and reading.
Kevin Gardiner A proud husband of 13+ years and even prouder father of 12+ years, I currently perform environmental contract work for the Air Force. I enjoy multiple outdoor pursuits including hunting, angling and camping and enjoy reading in my spare time. I’ve always enjoyed working with youth as I love their unpredictability – you never know what you’re going to get!
Stuart Nesbit Hi, I’m Stuart Nesbit, but many call me Paco. I really enjoy working with youth and going on mission trips. We have a great group here and there’s always something to get excited about.
