Teenagers are not the church’s future leaders, they are the church’s leaders right now. We help them prepare for adulthood as they learn what it means to make their own commitments to faith in Jesus Christ.

Volunteer Youth Director: Buddy Batson, 724-986-8574 / buddy15301@yahoo.com

Youth Ministry – First UMC & Avery UMC

Teens at Avery join together with teens at First UMC in Washington, PA for Sunday evening youth meetings, special events, and a summer mission trip every summer.

Serve as a Youth Leader!

Research shows that in order for faith to “stick” after high school, youth need at least 5 adults in addition to their parents to model Christian faith for them. Are you called to be one of these persons for our youth? Contact Buddy Batson to see how you can help.

Worship Leadership

Some of our teens help with technology in worship by running powerpoint slides and the sound board. We enjoy being led in worship by masters of technology.

Safe Sanctuaries

Avery UMC strives to reduce the risk of abuse of children and youth in its building and all its ministries. Click here to read our full policy.
