Hi! I’m Mike Nunan. I live in Colorado and serve at Arvada Covenant Church directing our youth ministry effort. I married my kindergarten sweetheart and we have a three year old daughter who has taught me that the swings are the best part of any good park worth going to. I’m excited to talk more about my church experience and learn from all of yours.
Sara is a youth pastor in Northern California. Most of her days are spent drinking coffee and dreaming up something goofy that leads to deeper relationship and discipleship. She loves sitting around dinner tables with friends, chocolate peanut butter ice cream, and seeing the good news of Jesus come to life in real, tangible ways. She finds teenagers genuinely hilarious and wise and can’t imagine doing ministry with anyone else. She is married to her husband Matt and has one sassy dog, Indy.
Ben Zuehlsdorff currently serves as the high school director at Marin Covenant Church in San Rafael, CA. Originally from Colorado, he enjoys cold things, the Broncos, and playing music. His wife, Shelly, is no doubt way cooler than him. Ben was always last in line in school. He’s not bitter about it. You can find him on the socials @benzdorff
Katy Langley is a passionate leader whose years of experience in youth ministry, humor, spontaneity, ridiculous tall height, and drive to know God more has allowed her to connect to youth of all ages. Expressing the Lord through music and worship is a big part of her heart, as well as continually learning -- she is currently a student at North Park Theological Seminary.
Katy is currently based in Redwood City, CA as a student ministries pastor for Peninsula Covenant Church. Check out my instagram: @katy_langley
Claire is an energetic former East Coaster and coffee addict who fiercely loves the Lord and is currently serving His Kingdom as a youth director in Colorado. With experience in inner-city and suburban youth ministry, Claire is passionate about helping students fall in love with Jesus Christ and leading them to the deep wellspring of God’s Word. When she’s not with students you can find her playing in the mountains or asking to pet people’s dogs.
Hi, I am Lauren Folkerts! I live in the Chicagoland area with my husband John. I am currently balancing seminary and working at Feed My Starving Children. Youth ministry has always been near and dear to my heart. I love to run(it keeps me sane) along with coffee and dark chocolate. Thanks for letting me be a part of this blog!
