Our NYM Team
Student Ministry Director
Graham grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia and came to trust Christ in elementary school. He graduated from Liberty University with a degree in youth ministry and is passionate about helping students develop an authentic faith in Jesus Christ. Alongside supporting Graham, his wife Jessie serves as a small group leader for our team.
Devin first came to Northridge during the 16:5 Conference in 2013, and came on staff to serve our student ministry in 2015. He oversees all things Program: planning and executing weekly services, all events, special services, and trips for NYM. As a graduate of Word of Life Bible Institute, he loves creating engaging environments that make students feel welcome. He wholeheartedly believes that fun builds bridges to relationships and relationships are often essential for the Gospel to take root in students' lives. His wife, Mollie, serves as a small group leader for our team. Devin, Mollie, and their two sons live in Chili, NY.
Middle School Director
Joe grew up in Bergen, NY and is in charge of overseeing our middle school ministry and teaching to the students each week. As a former summer camp director, Joe connects with middle school students in ways no one else can. His family is crazy involved too - when in doubt, you should assume his wife Emma is holding down the middle school fort. Joe came to Northridge in 2011 and started serving in our student ministry shortly after. He became the Middle School Director in 2013 and runs our middle school ministry as a volunteer. He works a full-time job during the week to support his ministry habit!
Director of Connections
Jolani’s high spirits and engaging personality make her the perfect face to welcome students to NYM every night. She makes sure they are connected to our ministry and small group leaders, ensuring that no student slips through the cracks. Jolani was invited to Northridge in 2013 where she heard the gospel and later trusted Christ to be the leader of her life and forgiver of her sins. In 2015, she joined our team and continues to help students experience the same love that she found in Christ. She and her husband Paul live in Greece, NY.
Liberti is originally from Toronto, Canada and has a passion for seeing Middle School and High School girls changed by the power of the Gospel. Her and her husband Tony came to Rochester to begin working at Northridge in May of 2018. Liberti specializes in making big picture things come to life. She handles the nitty gritty details so NYM can function properly and God can get the glory!
Matt is a “do-everything” type of guy. Need the sound tech to work? Call Matt. Need a band scheduled? Call Matt. Need someone to babysit your kids while doing both of those other things simultaneously? Call Matt. Not really, but really! Matt is an incredible asset to our team and he helps us pursue excellence in so many ways for God’s glory. Him and his wife Sarah have been at Northridge since May of 2017.
