Rev. Kara Jones, Youth Pastor, for upcoming gatherings and specifics


With the belief that life and faith are not dichotomous, Intertwine Youth Ministry Collective seeks to offer a safe space for youth (grades 6-12) to build relationships with others, pursue a life lived in Christ, and integrate faith into daily living. This inclusive and loving space offers an arena for youth to move closer to their identity as Imago Dei while belonging to a community and participating in the ways of Jesus. We gather for a mix of fun, fellowship study, prayer, service, and growth. Intertwine YMC is a collaborative youth ministry between local Christian churches in Delaware. Intertwine YMC’s current churches are:

William Street United Methodist Church (28 W. William St, Delaware, OH)

First Presbyterian Church of Delaware (73 W. Winter St, Delaware, OH)

Zion United Church of Christ (51 W. Central Ave, Delaware, OH)

Asbury United Methodist Church (55 W Lincoln Ave, Delaware,. OH)
