Director of Youth Ministry - Holly Christy

Our Director of Youth Ministry is originally from Cadillac, MI and a graduated in 2016  from Spring Arbor University with a degree in Pastoral Ministry.

Holly grew up in a Christian environment and has always been a church goer.  During her first semester of college at Texas Christian University her faith began to mature and  she felt an undeniable call to ministry.  Over and over again confirmation was given through friends, mentors, scripture and prayer.  From that point on Holly has never looked back.  The next semester she transferred to Spring Arbor University where she would earn her bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Ministry.  Since her initial call to ministry, she has been on a journey with God, shaping her call into a more and more solidified mission.  Holly has a passion for Christian education and discipleship and is a talented teacher, encourager, leader and planner. 

 

Since joining the Orange Park UMC ministry team in May of 2016, it has been amazing to see Holly’s God given traits and talents used to serve the Kingdom and transform our Children, Youth, and Adult Ministries. Holly started as our Director of Children and Adult Ministries,  and after two years transitioned into the Youth Director position in May of 2018. 

Holly is also a coffee aficionado, reader and loves to travel with her husband Dean.
