Taylor has been the youth director at The Valley since May 2019. She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Youth Ministry and a minor in Psychology from Barclay College. Her hometown is Columbus, Ohio, but being a part of a ministry family, she also grew up in Springfield and Alliance, Ohio. She spent three years on the leadership team for the Haviland Friends (Kansas) youth ministry. Also, Taylor served as a staff intern for The Hills Youth Ministry (Willoughby Hills Evangelical Friends Church) where she oversaw curriculum development and event administration. She has participated in mission experiences in Chicago, Appalachia (Harlan, KY), Camp Barnabas (Missouri), and Greece.
Taylor loves to travel, outdoor activities (like camping), and hanging out with friends. She also enjoys quality coffee, great food, a good book, and nerding out on superhero movies. In addition, she loves spending time with her family doing “all of the above.”
Her favorite part of working with teens is watching their enthusiasm in what they do and being able to witness how God breaks through in their lives. Taylor is passionate about walking with people through life as God moves in each person uniquely. Discipleship of teens is her mission. At TVC she works to serve and disciple teens, provide opportunities for them to grow deeper in their faith, and encourage them to join with the larger church family.
