Billy has previously served as Youth Worship Associate at La Cañada Presbyterian Church in La Cañada, California (2009-2011) and has most recently served as Director of Youth Ministry at Forest Hills Presbyterian Church (2013-2015) in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he has worked with students, adults, and worship ministries.

In his free time you can usually find Billy at a concert, buried in a book, or at a local pub watching a soccer match and trying the latest craft beers. He is interested in theology, music, sports and will challenge anyone who thinks they can beat him at Settlers of Catan. Billy is looking forward to serving at the American Church in Paris with such a vibrant, passionate, and loving community.

Introducing our Youth and Young Adult Intern 2015-16 — Alyssa McKnight

Alyssa McKnight Alyssa McKnight, our next Youth and Young Adult Intern will arrive in August.

Hi there! My name is Alyssa and I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve alongside you all at The American Church in Paris! I have only been to Paris once, in 2012 after I studied abroad at Ridley Hall in Cambridge, England, and I absolutely fell in love with the beauty of the streets of Paris. I am the fourth of six children and so I love big families and big gatherings and everything that comes with them! I was born and raised in Honolulu, HI, USA and have slowly been moving further and further east, unintentionally of course ☺. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical and Ancient Languages and am currently studying and working very hard to receive my Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary. I enjoy school and studying very much, but cannot wait to begin working full time in the field I am passionate about.

Youth Ministry

YouthStudents, please connect with us on Facebook!

The youth ministry at ACP exists to Love God and Others through the Grace of Christ.

Another way to look at it is this:

Be. Love. Serve. Repeat.

We strive to be a community that promotes and values being:

Relational — We value real, honest, and sincere relationships: with God and one another.
Hospitable — Regardless of who you are, where you come from, where you are going, or how long you are staying, we hope you feel at home here.
Missional — We believe that God intends Christians to be a blessing to the world.
Christian — We are a Christ-centered community seeking to learn and grow each day to know and follow Jesus.

ACP Youth is an active community made up of students 11-18 years old from many nationalities, traditions, and backgrounds.

All youth ages 11-18 meet every Sunday in the afternoons starting at 15h00 in the ACP catacombs.

The second Sunday of every month is now "Youth Sunday" and we invite all youth to participate in the leading of worship during the 11h00 worship service.
