Taylor has been the youth director at The Valley since May 2019. She has a Bachelor of Science in Youth Ministry and a minor in Psychology from Barclay College. Her hometown is Columbus, Ohio, but being a part of a ministry family, she also grew up in Springfield and Alliance, Ohio. Taylor loves traveling, outdoor activities (like camping), and hanging out with friends and family. She also enjoys quality coffee, great food, a good book, and nerding out on superhero movies. Her favorite part of working with teens is watching their enthusiasm for what they do and being able to witness how God breaks through in their lives. Taylor is passionate about walking with people through life, seeing how God moves through others, missions and serving the church and community, and teaching the word of God. Ultimately, discipleship of teens and families is her mission. At TVC she works to serve and disciple teens, provide opportunities for them to grow deeper in their faith, and encourage them to join with the larger church family.
