We are excited to announce that the Session has hired Brian Scholl as our new Pastoral Intern/Youth Ministry Coordinator!
Brian is already a member of Redeemer and has been part of the community since last summer, so many of you may already know him. If you have yet to spend time with Brian, here is a quick introduction and description of his staff position.
Brian is a native of Virginia, graduated from James Madison University in Media Communications and is currently a student at Reformed Theological Seminary training for pastoral ministry. Brian’s walk with the Lord began at a Christian camp and flourished in college when he began to serve in his church’s youth ministry as a volunteer and then on staff. He enjoys body surfing, ultimate Frisbee, Angels baseball, and Mexican food.
As the Pastoral Intern/Youth Ministry Coordinator, Brian will spend half his time serving the Redeemer community learning general pastoral skills alongside Pastors David and Adam, leading our Sunday operation logistics, while also helping with administrative needs. The other half of his time will be dedicated to leading our growing youth ministry under the direction of Pastor Adam, both caring for our current students and empowering them to reach out to their friends. Josh Cooper, our current Pastoral Assistant for Youth Ministry, will stay on staff and continue serving the youth with Brian until August. We are grateful for the ways Josh has blessed and helped to grow our youth ministry. Although he is transitioning out of his role, he will continue to be part of the Redeemer community.
If you haven’t met Brian, introduce yourself to him on a Sunday or take him out to lunch sometime. If you are a parent of youth students, or parent of a soon-to-be youth student, please take the opportunity to get to know Brian, especially when he personally reaches out to you over the next few days and weeks.
If you want to welcome Brian personally, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
