Youth Ministry Advisor, Presbyterians in Otago and Southland

I’m a mid thirties ginger who has only really done youth ministry since leaving school, which means I have had many different side jobs trying to survive, and I have also only studied ministry and theology and so I’m stuck…no no…I’m committed to my call to youth ministry. I currently work for the Presbyterians in Otago and Southland as their regional youth ministry guy.
