NCYM Needs Your Help!


In January of 2015, each classroom will have a host that will be there to welcome the presenter, assist in setting-up any media, introduce the presenter and close the class with a survey.

The main purpose of being a class host is to make sure that all things run as smooth as possible and if any questions arise from a presenter or attendee, you will be there to respond. Our goal is to have 2 hosts per class location.

Megan is a passionate (some say nutty!)  follower of Jesus, proud wife & mom, youth minister of 20+ years, national speaker, founder of thinkbig320© and author who gets excited about being real in a broken world. She received her Master’s in Theology with an emphasis in Youth and Family Ministries from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Since 1990, Megan has worked in the trenches of youth ministry at a variety of churches, including Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA where she served for nine years. There she co-authored and ran a ministry which is now in over 6,000+ churches both nationally and internationally called Life Hurts – God Heals.  Her network to youth workers across the country runs both deep and wide.

Her heartbeat is to empower kids, teens and parents, as well as those who work with them, to understand that they are His work of art and that God wants to use every part of their story mightily.

Megan and her husband Adam live in So. California and enjoy doing just about every playful thing under the sun with their two rambunctious sons who are both under the age of 11.
