Jodi and I are so glad to be serving in the state of Tennessee as the Youth and Discipleship Directors.
It is our prayer that we will assist local churches disciple a generation of Christ followers. We trust this website helps you to discover all of the different ways that we can partner together as we build the His kingdom. Please know that Jodi and I care about all of you and we’re here to serve alongside and help in any way we can.  Please feel free to contact us if there is anything that we can do to assist you in ministry.

On our website you will find resources for youth and children’s pastors as well as students. There is information concerning upcoming events, promotional videos, blogs and recaps from past events and much more. We are always looking for stories, articles, photos and highlights of youth ministries and individual stories, both in written form and video. If you have anything you would like to share please submit it to Kathryn Guyselman. You can find her contact information here.
