“Tif” has been in full time youth ministry since 2000. She has been in Ministry here at WUMC since 2008. After growing up in Jefferson County, Ohio she moved to North Carolina where she met her wonderful husband of 21 years Jeff. After many years in full time ministry in Clayton, NC Tif felt like God was calling her back home to serve. Tif loves our youth and what she enjoys most is going on mission trip outings and Lakeside Institute. She enjoys meeting young people where they are, journeying with them, and seeing them use their spiritual gifts to help build God’s kingdom. She is both blessed and proud to be serving as youth pastor in the community she grew up in. She loves all of the people at WUMC and enjoys letting out her “inner child” as she serves God by interacting with the youth. Tif enjoys watching Syracuse basketball, spending time with family, and hanging out with friends at Lakeside. Her most favorite thing in the world is her daughter Emily and cat Buddy.
