Our New Youth Minister
Notes from the pastor



As you have no doubt already heard, we have a new Youth Minister at Front Street.  As we began the search, we shortly realized we already had the perfect person right here inside the church.  Chris Huneycutt officially began his duties on July 1, and I’ve asked him to share a bit about himself so that those who don’t already know him can become acquainted with him.  I invite you to meet Chris in what he has shared, below.
I am Chris Huneycutt, long time member of Front Street, and I will be leading our youth program.  My family and I moved to Burlington in 1980 when I was five, and we have been here ever since.  I am married to Betsy, and have two wonderful children, Mary Elizabeth, a rising high school freshman, and Graham, a rising 5th grader. Of course, everyone knows my sweet mother, Betty, icon of Front Street.  My dad was Scott.
I grew up in the church, and I can unequivocally say that it has been a constant in my life.  From Sunday School to VBS, to years of YMCA basketball and softball, and most importantly, youth group, these things have played a vital role in my life.  They influenced me so much that when Betsy and I were first married in 2001, we hosted small groups of youth – those kids are now married with children.
I returned to a volunteer role with our youth group somewhere around 2010 because there was a need for help and I wanted to help youth realize how impactful the experience can be 
We have a fantastic group of young people with more on the way.  We also have a great group of adult volunteers.  I am looking forward to seeing what great things we have in store, but we will need your help.  As the saying goes, it takes a village.  If you want to help, do not hesitate to let me know.  I want our youth and adults to interact as a community as we spread the love of God because we are all ministers.
Some things about me:
Favorite TV Shows – Seinfeld and Andy Griffith
Favorite Musical Genre – Beach Music
Favorite Current Band – The Avett Brothers
Favorite All Time Band – Led Zeppelin
Favorite Sports Teams – The Braves, Panthers and all things Tar Heels
Favorite Food – Steak
I am honored by the opportunity to serve the church and our youth.  My door is always open and I am just a phone call (336-213-2895), text, or email (chrishuneycutt75@gmail.com) away.
I know you join me in praying for Chris as he enters this new area of ministry responsibility.  If you would like to be in ministry with our youth, please let him know.  And, in that same spirit, if you would like to be in ministry with our children, please let our Children’s Director, Marcy McAdams, know.
Grace and peace,
Pastor Ross
