Event Registration 2019-2020

We enjoy taking our students to events that further their discipleship. Often times the church has fronted the money and collected from the student/parents later. We cannot allow this practice to happen anymore. Here is a registration form with most of our events for 2019-2020 and deadlines. A NONREFUNDABLE deposit for each event should accompany this form. **FOR OZARK MISSION PROJECT, I WILL ONLY RESERVE SPOTS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TURNED IN THIS FORM AND DEPOSIT AT THE BACK TO SCHOOL BASH.

Print the form HERE

Bring it with you to the Back to School Bash or to the church by Wednesday, August 28.

Welcome Mr. Rod Hocott!

We are so excited to welcome to the phyouth staff, Mr. Rod Hocott!  Rod will be working with confirmation and starting a new “MID-phyouth, too! “program on Wednesday evenings.  He recently retired as the Director of MidYouth Ministry at First United Methodist Church in Conway, Arkansas after 50 years in local church and community youth ministry. Prior to serving Conway FUMC, Rod served as Arkansas Conference Minister for Youth and Young Adults, Youth Minister at FUMC in Springdale, St. James UMC in Little Rock, FUMC in Fort Smith (2 times) and spent four years working with youth in a state hospital in Kansas after finishing his master’s degree in Music Therapy. Rod is married to Rev. Gail D. Hocott and they have three children, seven grandchildren, two dogs and a cat. Rod’s Philosophy of Youth Ministry: The importance of youth ministry lies in it’s ability to help youth build relationships with God and peers, while learning leadership skills that will not only help them as they grow in the church, but in their lives outside the church as well. These two elements and all that they encompass, worship, missions, justice, stewardship, etc., will develop our youth into strong disciples of Jesus Christ, who make disciples equipped to transform lives, communities and the world.Rod-pic
