Janelle Nesbitt is a Youth Coordinator at a yoked Methodist/Presbyterian church which plays host to an ecumenical youth program serving over 125 students ranging from Kindergarten to the 12th grade.
In 2013, Janelle was part of a group of leaders that recognized the need to change the local denominational church youth program to a community youth program hosted at the church. She worked with the church’s Session in convincing them that the current youth program could better serve “all” people, as Jesus has taught us. After positive feedback from the Session, the programming changed names and format and has been vital for many years!
Janelle worked as an event coordinator for the betterment of her local community for 9 years and enjoys volunteering on a variety of local service boards, along with teaching religion classes each week and filling the pulpit when called upon. She is a strong believer that God gave all His people of all ages special gifts, and the everyone is His masterpiece. Janelle earned her para-certification in Youth Ministry through Southwestern College.
