Sam Javed serves at Youth Minister. Sam is passionate about Jesus and is deeply committed to creating and growing relationships for the purpose of furthering the Kingdom of God and glorifying Christ. He finds value in helping young people discover Jesus and the purpose for which they were created. With the addition of Sam to our staff, we are enthusiastically entering into a partnership with Young Life.
From the age of 10, Sam has lived in the Grand Traverse Area, attending West Middle, West High, and NMC. Having become a Christian at age 19, he knows what it’s like to navigate adolescence having no relationship with Jesus. This is why Sam has a huge heart for middle and high school youth. He and his wife Sara are proud parents to their young daughter Norah.
