Having working for the Circuit as Youth Ministry Leader, Victoria is now working with the Yorkshire North and East District as District Youth Leader. Part of her time is still spent in the York Circuit working with young people on the One X programme and mentoring other leaders.
Victoria has gained widespread experience and skills through voluntary and paid youth ministry both in this country and in America where she also served as a Youth Ministry Consultant. During that time she has also been awarded Masters Degrees in Divinity and Ministry with Young People at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Victoria says: "I feel called to youth ministry, so it is very exciting to see how committed York Methodist circuit are to their young people and to become a part of that investment. After many years in youth ministry; on both sides of the Atlantic, with different denominations, as volunteer, parent, consultant and employee I have experienced many different approaches, perspectives and roles within youth ministry. This experience allows me to approach the work with creativity, flexibility and deep appreciation for the importance of remembering that the centre of any Christian ministry is not humanity but God."
