Youth Programs

From Rory Chambers,
our new Associate Pastor for Youth and Community:

It’s certainly an odd time to be entering into pastoral ministry, but I couldn’t ask for a more welcoming community to be starting in.
 
I’ve been so warmly supported as things have kicked off here at Dutch Neck and I’m grateful and excited to be starting this role in such a special church.
 
The #1 thing for young people here at Dutch Neck Pres to know is that I am here for you. The hiring committee made it a priority that there is someone on staff at DNPC to be available especially for young people to have in their corner and that’s what I’m here for.
 
Got ideas? I want to hear them. 
 
Want to make something happen in our community? I want to help you get it happening. God has gifted you all with passion, skills, and more resources than I’m sure any of us yet realize; I’m looking forward to seeing what God will do around here as we work together.
 
And y’know, we’ll also get together for just some silly games on Zoom every now and then because life is fun and full of joy, even amidst the heavy stuff of the present moment. We’re in a liminal moment in this country (and the world) and I’m not here to shy away from the important work we have before us as people who confess to a God who was crucified. If you want to talk—about anything—send me an email and we’ll make time. 
 
On the topic of time: I’m here for 25 hours a week, so I’m available a lot of the time but not all of the time. In the other hours of the week I’m being a dad and looking for fun, so if you contact me and I don’t get back to you immediately, that’ll be why. Don’t let that discourage you.
 
I’m looking forward to being with you all, thank you again for your welcome.
