Kate Adamson, Youth Director

We are very fortunate to have Kate as an inspired director of Youth and Family Ministry. Kate grew up going to church at the New Thought Unity Center in Cincinnati, OH. Her time there, especially in high school as a YOUer, shaped her profoundly and helped root her life with a spiritual focus. She studied Sociology and Religion at Wittenberg University in Ohio, with a minor in Global Studies, and has continued graduate studies in Sociology at the University of Virginia.

Kate serves on the Board of the Green Adventure Project, an environmental education non-profit that educates and inspires students of all ages. She is active in local community theaters, a neighborhood garden, and a tribe of circusy fire performers. She has a daughter, 3 stepchildren, and a fantastic life partner, Jeffrey.
