Youth are not only the future of our church, they are also the present, and here in York-Credit Valley we are committed to helping teenagers grow into committed followers of Jesus Christ. In light of that commitment, the Area Council has approved the doubling of the hours for a staff person dedicated to youth ministry.
Say hello to Alexandra McIntosh, our new YCV Area Youth Ministry Coordinator.
Alexandra’s mission is to strengthen youth ministry in York-Credit Valley by engaging and equipping paid and volunteer youth leaders, clergy, and lay leaders so they can together nurture the faith formation of youth in their home parishes. Alexandra is an integral part of Bishop Jenny’s leadership team as she liaises with the Bishop, Area Council, and Area Deaneries on relevant events and pertaining to youth. She is also an active member of the Archbishop’s Youth Ministry Committee, which plans youth events and promotes youth ministry in the Diocese.
Alexandra is a graduate of the University of Toronto (Arts and Science) and of the Diocesan Youth Ministry Apprenticeship Program. She is presently also the part-time Pastoral Associate for Youth & Young Adults at Church of the Redeemer.
Contact Alexandra via the Area Bishop’s Office or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
