Youth Ministries: Joe Zaweia

Greetings to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My name is Joseph Zawiea, Director of Youth Ministries here at the Brooklyn United Methodist Church. 
I am originally from Liberia (West Africa)  and I bow in submission and profound gratitude for the opportunity accorded me to do ministry with the amazing and talented young people of our church and community. 
I am humble, approachable, open-minded, submissive, confident, and a young man who loves to talk about Jesus. It is my desire to see every young person walking in accordance with God’s plans and purpose. For the Gospel of Jesus is the Good News and no matter what happens, this Good News must be our main focus.
Our passion here at the Brooklyn UMC is to create a culture of WE and ensure a spirit filled youth fellowship. The goal of Youth Council is to ensure successful implementation of all fellowship’s activities by introducing new benefiting programs that are geared towards giving you not just a ‘good’ but an ‘excellent’ BUMC experience. 
Looking forward to working with you.
“Christ Above All”
