youTheology: Still Relevant

I am a 2005 youTheology (yT) alum living in the Des Moines area. My yT year was led by the original Audrey-David team and included the pilgrimage to England in June of '05. I loved my time in youTheology and have been back to the reunion at Saint Paul every summer to play ping-pong, run around the chapel, sing hymns, and hang out with other yT’s... which now includes my little sister, Hannah. I still use today many of the things I learned in yT. I even had a college class on Christian ethics that was based around the Wesleyan Quadrilateral.

I am currently a substitute teacher for several school districts while looking for a full-time teaching position. Every single day is an adventure. Not having a regular job has left me with plenty of time to be involved in my church (Valley UMC in West Des Moines). I play percussion with the praise band, teach a junior/senior high Sunday school class, serve on the board of Trustees, and am helping plan this summer's youth mission trip.
