“Sometimes, it takes being broken to really allow God to be at work in our lives. That’s how it was for me. In my brokenness, I called out to God and made a promise to Him. I knew that He was going to bring me through the fire, and WHEN He did, I was going to use the gifts that He gave me to glorify and honor Him. Since then, it has been my desire to lead other people into the presence of God through true worship.”

Kasey has been serving as youth leader of NBC since 2017. Prior to accepting this role she had been very involved and invested in the youth program. She was called into ministry as a youth and now serving in this role she understands more fully the call that God placed on her life.
"As difficult and challenging as youth ministry can be, it is so rewarding! My passion is teaching, discipling, and mentoring our youth. I believe they are our future and they matter! (1 Timothy 4:12) I desire to be an example for them, a confidant, and a safe place. I want to create a welcoming and fun atmosphere all while holding true to the fundamentals of God's word."
