06.17.20 | by Abigail Herrington

    Students, are you ready to be part of an amazing new ministry for youth? Join the Youth Council!

    Students in 7th through 12th grade are invited to apply for a position as a grade representative on the Youth Ministries Council (aka Youth Council). What does a grade representative do? They help plan and implement events and programs for youth at Keller UMC. There is one representative selected per grade. To learn more, you can read about the duties and responsibilities of the position here. Applications will be reviewed by the Director of Youth Ministries, the youth representatives on Ministry Council, and adult volunteers who serve on Youth Council. 

    Applications open on June 19 and are due by July 19. Please apply for the grade level you will enter during the 2020-2021 school year. You will be notified by email of the status of your application on July 21. Should you be selected for Youth Council during the 2020-2021 school year, our first gathering will be August 9. The location is to be determined based on COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. 

    Please note: 

    • Youth Council leaders must be in 7th through 12th grade during the 2020-2021 school year.
    • Youth Council leaders must be a member of Keller United Methodist Church. If not a member, they must regularly attend church events and programming.
    • Much communications happens via email. Council members are expected to read all emails and reply promptly. Communication is vital.
    • The app “Remind” is used to help the entire group keep in contact by sending our reminders about emails, upcoming events and meetings. “GroupMe” is also used by the entire group to provide opportunities of further connection. Remind and GroupMe are safe apps for both iPhone/Android phones. (This is not a social media app.) We request leaders who have a smart phone use these apps to help improve communication.
