Keri Newcomb

Youth Director

Staff Photos    Hi!  I am Keri and I am the Director of Youth Ministries. This means that I am lucky enough to get to work with kids in grades 7-12. I also work for Worthington City Schools teaching Spanish to 7th and 8th graders. I have been a public school teacher since 1995 and this is my second time leading the youth program at Bethel.  I started attending Bethel in 1992 and have been involved with Youth in some capacity or another ever since.  I also sing with the Agape Choir at the contemporary service.

    I graduated from Worthington Schools and have a B.S. in Telecommunications from Ohio University. I attended The Ohio State University to obtain my Spanish teaching certificate. I earned a M.A. in Teaching from National University and am currently a National Board Certified Teacher. 

    My husband Rodney and I just celebrated our 11th anniversary. We have two children (Kait-9 and Dylan-7) who are dynamic, expressive and creative! We love Bethel for the stellar music program, the dedicated children’s ministries and because our attendance and participation at Bethel help us grow closer to Christ.
