Meet Our Youth Director

Kelley Sonnen is from Castroville, Texas, a quaint, historic community about a half-hour drive from downtown San Antonio.

As of Sunday, March 15, 2015 Kelley is the new Director of Youth Ministries.Kelley attended Lon Morris Junior College for two years on a Bishops scholarship and then attended Concordia University Texas for a year before moving back home and serving at her home church, Medina Valley UMC, as the youth director for almost three years. Kelley grew that program from four kids to almost 15. She is now attending Our Lady of the Lake University and hoping to finish her religion degree soon.

Kelley has caught the travel bug and always is looking for the next adventure. Not surprisingly, Kelley also has a heart for missions. She is very close with her family and they are an active part of her ministry. Included in her family are her two dogs Zoe and Lulu. Kelley’s hope is to teach as many teenagers about God’s love and sacrifice as possible.
