Welcome to our new youth ministry director, Bethany Lockie, who begins June 1. Bethany grew up in eastern Ohio and western Iowa and within the United Methodist Church. She has a bachelor’s degree in religion and theology from the New York liberal arts Christian college, Houghton College.
Bethany has worked for Glade Run Lutheran Services and Wesley Spectrum Services in Pittsburgh and with AmeriCorps in New York. She first felt called to youth ministry when working with the Somali and Burmese refugee populations on the west side of Buffalo, New York.
Bethany and her husband Darryl moved to Pittsburgh in 2013 and have enjoyed exploring the neighborhoods of the city with their dog Lucy.
