New jobs: Saline First Assembly of God hires new youth pastor, children’s minister
Saline First Assembly of God is announcing a major investment in its youth ministry with the hiring two new leaders to expand its programs for Ann Arbor-area children, teenagers and college students.
The Saline church – located at 300 Old Creek Drive, about 10 minutes south of Ann Arbor – has hired Southgate native Kyle Wentzel to serve as its new pastor of student ministries.
The church has also hired Ypsilanti Township resident Jeremy DeVee to serve as its new children’s ministries director, marking the first time in Saline First Assembly of God’s 57-year history that the church has had a paid children’s minister.
Mike Johnson, the church’s previous student ministries pastor, will become pastor of technology, outreach and special events.
Randy Bomey, senior pastor of Saline First Assembly of God, said the public is invited to meet the new youth leadership team at the church’s annual picnic on Sunday morning, Aug. 18. The picnic will follow the regular 10:45 a.m., and it’s free to attend.
Wentzel comes to the church after completing a six-month ministry internship at New Hope Assembly of God in Taylor, Mich. through Lakeland, Fla.-based Southeastern University. The Southgate Anderson High School graduate studied criminal law at Defiance College and Wayne State University. He played football at Defiance.
Wentzel will be responsible for leading the church’s programs aimed at ministering to teenagers and college students. Saline First Assembly of God’s youth group meets every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., and all young people are welcome.
“We are excited to see what God has in store for our youth programs under the leadership of Pastor Kyle and Jeremy,” Bomey said. “We have a heart to reach young people in the Saline area because we believe the Bible, which says God has a plan to prosper them and to give them a hope and a future.”
DeVee, a full-time teacher and April 2006 graduate of Eastern Michigan University, will serve in his new role as children’s ministry director on a part-time basis. He will lead the church’s weekly programs for newborns, toddlers, pre-school children and school-age children.
Saline First Assembly of God offers children’s services and programs on Sunday mornings during its regular adult worship service at 10:45 a.m.
“You can expect to hear great things coming from the ministries of this church in the months ahead as we reach out to people of all ages for Christ in our communities,” Bomey said.
Along the pathway to that goal, we worship the Lord with all our might, help each other grow in the grace and the knowledge of Jesus, and reach out compassionately to our community to be a blessing to others. We invite you to explore this website to get a better understanding of who we are, what we believe, where we are, and where we’re going.
The warm love and positive attitude of the people of Saline First Assembly of God will encourage you along the way on your own faith journey and give you hope for tomorrow. Working together we’ll all get closer to God than any of us could get alone.
Come and visit us any time…you’re always welcome. Encounter the love, joy, and peace of the Holy Spirit here while being among some of God’s choicest servants in a beautiful worship setting. It’s an experience that you’ll never forget!
