Youth Assistant

I am a youth intern with Calvary's youth group known as XYM and a graduate from State College Area High School class of 2018. I first started coming to XYM when I was a freshman in High school and instantly fell in love with the great community and teaching that was done there. Throughout the first few months, I began asking questions about who Jesus is and what it looks like to follow Him. Later that year I accepted Jesus as my savior and got baptized early into my sophomore year. During my junior and senior year I really felt God calling me to ministry and decided to try my best to become an intern with Calvary to see what it looks like first hand to do youth ministry. I am excited to be working with XYM and seeing a revival start here in the center region and our local schools. If you would like to volunteer with XYM or have any questions feel free to email me at
