Youth Ministry


Carmel UMC Youth Ministries serve youth in 6th-12th grades! ALL students are welcome anytime! This is not a club that requires membership. Come as you are and enjoy being a part of this great family as we grow as disciples and impact our church, community, and world for Christ!  


Thursdays 7-8:30pm at CUMC 

This is our weekly summer youth program that will take place, usually at the fire pit and gaga court on the NE end of our property. This is a time of games, fellowship, campfire, worship music, and guest speakers sharing their life testimonies. This is open to all 6-12th grade students. Invite your friends!

Youth Grow

Grow Groups

Being involved in a Grow Group is a great way to connect with other students and grow closer to God.  Grow Groups will spend time laughing, praying, learning, and serving together.   Grow Groups are made of approximately 10-12 students (same grade and gender) and a caring adult leader.

Matt Sherrill

Director of Youth  

BIO: Matt joined the youth ministry staff in February 2018. He is originally from Cornelius, NC and served as the Youth Director at his home church of Mt. Zion UMC for 14 years before coming to Carmel. Matt loves working with students, teaching them about Christ, having fun, and serving those in need. In his spare time he enjoys doing anything outdoors from biking, to ultimate frisbee, to hammocking, to water activities, to gardening, to woodworking. Matt and his wife Julie also have a dog named Boone. 
 
Kevin Andrews

Kevin Andrews
Minister of Youth

BIO: Kevin has been on the youth ministry staff at Carmel UMC since 2007. He believes following Jesus makes a world of difference in the life of a teenager and survived middle and high school because of that reality. Besides encouraging students to trust Jesus in new and bigger ways, he enjoys spending time with his wife and four kids, tinkering in the garage, and piloting airplanes or other flying contraptions. Need to easily spot Kevin in a crowd? Look for the balding man with the slider phone (a.k.a. “dinophone”) from circa 2009.
