Kristen Starner – Youth Director


Kristen comes to us with over ten years experience as a Spanish teacher at the high school level and as the Youth Director for Glenmoore UMC.  She and her husband, Michael, became members of Bethel in 2018 along with their 3 boys.  Jackson and Lucas affirmed their commitment at an outdoor confirmation service in the Shick Shack on August 2, while their proud brother, Max (9) watched on.  Though the pandemic has altered our lives and activities significantly, it has not diminished Bethel’s call to connect with the children and youth.  Kristen looks forward to facilitating a program of ministry for the youth of the church which will encourage them to develop their gifts and talents and to use them in the service of the church and in praising God.
