After a diligent search by the FUMC Search Committee, in conjunction with Ministry Architects, and approval by the Staff Parish Relations Committee, Devon Bailey will join FUMC on October 18 as the new Youth Director.
Devon has been involved in youth work, recently with Young Life in the Washington, D.C. area. He has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion from Florida State University, where he studied Christianity, Judaism, Islam and the Bible. In Devon’s words, his calling is “to build up and empower communities and leaders to be agents of reconciliation for the Kingdom of God. Seeking justice, promoting change, and allowing a space to wrestle and contemplate it all has been work that has brought me tremendous joy.”
