Associate Pastor for Young Adults and Youth Formation
We are delighted to nominate Keith Thompson for the position of Associate Pastor for Young Adults and Youth Formation. Since March, our team has worked diligently and expediently to find the ideal candidate to walk alongside the 20s & 30s in ministry, as well as someone who would find
joy and meaning in leading our Youth through the Confirmation process. We believe we have found that person in Keith. Originally from Roswell, Keith grew up at Northminster Presbyterian Church, later serving as the Children’s Ministry Intern there. Keith attended Davidson College and received his Master of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary.
Keith has served as a Youth Ministry Intern for Davidson Presbyterian Church and Central Presbyterian Church, taught English to students in France, and assisted as a Young Adult Volunteer at the 174 Trust in Belfast, Ireland. He has experience teaching Sunday School, coordinating special events, and planning worship for people of different ages and backgrounds. Keith feels called to team-based congregational ministry, as well as to a community of faith that is deeply involved in the surrounding area. We believe that Keith’s enthusiasm, authenticity, sincerity, and thoughtfulness will enable him to excel in the role of Associate Pastor for Young Adults and Youth Formation. We joyfully recommend Keith Thompson for the position of Associate Pastor for Young Adults and Youth Formation.
