New Youth Ministries Staff Hired At Burks United Methodist Church

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Burks United Methodist Church, 6433 Hixson Pike announced two new interim staff hires, Matt Coniglio and Jessica Crum, according to Rev. Rowland Buck, pastor. 

Both Mr. Coniglio and Ms. Crum will be giving leadership to the Youth Ministries program. Mr. Coniglio will give focus with the high school students and Ms. Crum will give emphasis to the Middle School students. They will work together to ensure the best possible direction for our students, while we are in the process of looking for a permanent youth director.

Mr. Coniglio has grown up at Burks and has deep roots in the community. He has been away for the past few years at Xavier University in Ohio. Now upon graduation earlier this spring, he has returned to help fulfill his passion for ministry through the youth program.

Ms. Crum is currently finishing up her last year at UTC and displays a beautiful commitment to helping our youth and sharing the hope of Jesus Christ. She will make an excellent addition to the youth program. Both both have worked for Camp Lookout as camp counselors and have trained under the leadership of the Holston Conference camping ministries and have worked with other Methodist church's youth programs.

Mr. Coniglio and Ms. Crum will also be bringing energy and excitement to help Stephanie Hopper and Laura Lewis with the Kidzone program. Look for some updates and news from Ms. Hopper and Ms. Lewis on the children's worship time.
