Meet the DUMC Youth Staff!

 


 

Karen Bass -  Director of Youth Ministries

What do you do here? I'm here to connect students to God, each other, the church, and to the world.  Helping us all become disciples of Christ sounds good. My hope is that each student that walks through our doors feels welcomed, loved, and can call DUMC home.
