ACP YouthStudents, please connect with us on Facebook!

 

Youth ages 11-18


Sundays 15h00-17h00 in the ACP Catacombs and the Gym.


The youth ministry at ACP exists to love God and others through the grace of Christ.

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

For more information, please contact Pastors Jodi and Doug Fondell. Thank you!

Pastor Victor Greene

Youth and Young Adults Pastor

Victor Greene, Youth and Young Adults PastorVictor was born in Dayton, Ohio, and from the age of 10 grew up bouncing around South Florida. He attended Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida where he drummed for the Worship Choir and graduated with a degree in Practical Theology. While attending Southeastern, he interned in Los Angeles, CA. After graduation in 2009, Victor spent five years in Concord, North Carolina serving a dual position as the High School Bible teacher and the Associate Youth Pastor at Concord First Assembly. After a deep stirring to pursue further education, he enrolled at Duke Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. During his three years at Duke University, he lived on campus as a Graduate Resident & Resident Assistant. As a student and through Duke’s Field Education program, Victor had the opportunity to intern in South Africa, Chicago, and North Carolina. Despite growing up in the Assemblies of God, the internships helped confirmed that he was called to be ordained through the Disciples of Christ. In 2017 and after graduating from Duke with a Masters of Divinity degree, he enrolled at UNC Medical Center as a Chaplain Summer Intern. It was during that summer when Victor first felt a call to ACP.

Victor is the youngest in his family, never quite hit a long-prayed-for-growth-spurt (thanks mom), and loves arroz con pollo. In his free time, he loves watching sports, writing, reading (again, credit to his mother), and has a love-hate relationship with the outdoors (i.e he enjoys God's grandeur that can be felt at the top of a mountain but is also terrified of the critters, bugs, and several living things he'd most certainly have to go through to get there [that'll preach]). Though born in Ohio, Victor confesses to being an addict of Vernors Ginger Soda and a die-hard Michigan Wolverine fan thanks to his father who grew up in Flint, Michigan. Lastly and significantly, Victor is most passionate about the intersections of theology, social justice, and the arts.

Introducing our Youth Ministry Intern — Julia Metcalf

Arriving in August 2018

Julia Metcalf Julia Metcalf will serve as the Youth and Young Adult intern for the coming year. She first came to know Jesus through her Church youth group and is grateful for the chance to walk alongside the youth and young adults at ACP this coming year. She is coming to ACP from Princeton Theological Seminary (USA) where she is pursuing a Master of Divinity and just completed her second of the three year degree program. She is on the ordination track within the Presbyterian Church of the USA and is under the care of Session of First Presbyterian Church, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Julia was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and that is where her parents and siblings live now. She was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Church Music with an emphasis in Vocal Performance from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. She loves to sing and play piano. One of her biggest passions has always been music, especially music in a worship context. She feels closet to God when she is worshipping through music. She also has a passion for ecumenical worship and bringing people from all walks of life together to praise and draw near to the same God. She is thankful to spend this coming year witnessing and participating in a community that does this well. She is also thankful to learn from a staff and congregation that cares deeply about social justice and racial reconciliation.

Julia is so excited about the opportunity to join the ACP congregation for a year in Paris. She knows this will be a year of tremendous growth and learning and hopes to enter this space with open-hands and compassion for everything the community has to teach and offer. She loves meeting new people and welcomes anyone to please come up and introduce themselves! She loves coffee, ice cream (or gelato), cooking, reading, traveling, and trying new things. She hopes to get a real taste of the city and its people while she is here with us, which includes all of you!"
