Three coordinators have been named for National Youth Conference 2014, to be held July 19-24, 2014, on the campus of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo.: Katie Cummings, Tim Heishman, and Sarah Neher.
Katie Cummings hails from Summit Church of the
Brethren in Bridgewater, Va. She graduated from Bridgewater College in
2012 with a major in sociology and a minor in peace studies. She
currently is serving in Brethren Volunteer Service as an assistant
coordinator for the Church of the Brethren workcamp ministry.
Tim Heishman calls the North Baltimore Mennonite
Church “home” this year as he serves as a youth leader through Mennonite
Voluntary Service and also teaches seventh graders at Acts4Youth, an
after-school program in the city. Over the years, he has called many
places “home,” including the Dominican Republic where his parents served
as Church of the Brethren mission workers. He graduated from Eastern
Mennonite University in 2012 with majors in biblical studies and
Sarah Neher, currently a senior at McPherson (Kan.)
College, calls McPherson Church of the Brethren her home church. She
will complete student teaching this spring, and graduate in May with a
degree in biology education.
The three coordinators will meet Feb. 15-17 with the National Youth
Cabinet to begin planning the next National Youth Conference.
--Becky Ullom Naugle is director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry.
