          New Director of Youth Ministries

My name is Vinnie Carta, and I was born and raised in Safety Harbor, a small town in Clearwater. I am 21, and currently enrolled at UF, hoping to graduate with a major in religion in a couple years. I have been involved in the United Methodist Church since I was in high school, mainly in the middle and high school youth group programs. My hope is to one day be working full time in youth ministry or mission work, or maybe even a combination of the two. I am so excited to be the new Youth Director here at First United Methodist, and I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for all of us!

Youth Waiver

If a youth would like to participate in any events, especially those off the FUMC campus, we ask that a waiver is completely filled out and signed by both youth member and parent before the given event. This is to ensure the safety of all youth, volunteers, and staff involved. This also complies with the Child Youth Protection Policy as outlined by The United Methodist Church and the current FUMC Volunteer Handbook. Thank you for your cooperation!   Click Here for the printable Youth Waiver Form.
