CONNECT GROUPS

Connect Groups are easy entry ways to authentically connects with students and adults on a smaller scale than Intersect. These are ongoing groups designed to connect students with each other and occasionally do some service projects together. Students are welcome to come to any of these at any time and friends are always welcome!

Youth Grow

Grow Groups

Grow Groups are for students who are ready to go deeper in their faith as a disciple for Jesus Christ. These groups provide a chance for students to experience their faith in more challenging ways, wrestle with hard questions, dig into Bible Study, and go out together for Christ to serve those in need.

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.

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.
