Welcome to youth ministry at Oak Grove United Methodist Church! We are a community of teenagers (grades 6th-12th) and adults composed of many faces, names, and stories. We may embrace different points of view on some issues, but we are united in our desire to create life changing communities through Jesus. If you are in 6th-12th grade, no matter who you are, what your story is, or what you believe, you are always welcome here.
We are so excited that our new Director of Youth Ministry, Andy Webb, started June 15. Andy is a native of DeKalb County, born and raised in the Decatur/Avondale area. Andy has worked with youth and children for 30 years, most recently at Johns Creek United Methodist Church for the past 17 years.
Andy brings many years of experience, a fun spirit, and a heart for youth ministry in the name of Christ to Oak Grove. We look forward to getting to know Andy and his two daughters Maizie (14, right) and Cari (12, left). Please send a note of welcome to Andy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
