List of Staff Members:

Senior Pastor: Adrienne Brewington

Visitation chair:  Margaret Slomin

Youth Ministry:  John Marrine

Youth are our future so I want to be involved in helping to establish a solid spiritual foundation that will support them no matter what is going on around them. I feel very blessed to be partnering with the parents of youth in developing an environment where they feel safe to be themselves, where they can worship and grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ with like-minded Christian youth. To provide this requires a strong Youth Ministry which I believe we have at Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church.
