Creative Arts Team   

The Creative Arts team is a part of YouthQuest that contains guys and girls who are exceptionally gifted in drama, comedy and media arts and are devoted to serving the Lord with their talents. The team uses comedy as an icebreaker for getting to know students as well as and more importantly a way to open a door for the Gospel. The team also uses their ability on stage to present biblical truths to students, such as God’s love.

Why YQ? After having spent four years studying theatre throughout my high school career I felt The Lord calling me to use my talents to glorify Him and serve on YouthQuest.

Major: Women's Ministry 
Why YQ? I have known since I was in sixth grade, when YouthQuest began coming to my church, that I wanted to serve on the team. Now with God's great provision and timing, I have been given the opportunity to be on a team that serves the local church and pours God's love into every single student. There's nothing I love more than seeing a student begin to understand God's love for them, and with YouthQuest I'm given that opportunity on the weekends that we travel. My heart has been with this ministry for so many years now, and I am so honored to be on the team.

Why YQ? Starting in 6th grade I started going to DNow weekends put on by YouthQuest. My freshman year during a DNow was when I really saw the Gospel in a new light and put my fath in Christ. God has really used this team to change my life, so I wanted to be on the other end of that for others!
