In Revive, we exist to challenge, nurture and educate youth by instilling unconditional love and spreading God's message. Our youth ministry encourages fellowship to ensure close relationships with each other, the youth leaders and most importantly God. We encourage discussion and questions as we learn about the life of Jesus and how we are called to spread his message by being his hands and feet to the world. We discuss how we can be positive lights through interactive activities and events in the community and time spent together in youth group. We provide opportunities for the youth to serve their church, grow in their relationship with each other and God and learn how we can live our lives to serve God. 

We meet from 4:00-5:00PM on Sunday nights in the youth on the second floor above Buffalo Wild Wings. 

(For grades 6-12) 

Chloe Kiser

Youth director

My name is Chloe Kiser. I am the Youth Director at New Song Fellowship. Before I embarked on this journey, let me tell you a little more about me and my life experiences. I grew up in Valparaiso where I graduated from the local high school. I was baptized, confirmed, and attended the downtown First United Methodist Church. When New Song was founded, my family and I saw the new vision and decided to check it out. We visited, loved it, and I have been enjoying services ever since. I volunteered in the nursery until I left for college. I attended and graduated Manchester University in three years (participating in the Fast Forward program) where I received my Bachelor of Science degree with a Business Management major and Psychology minor. During my last year of college, I spent my days in Walt Disney World. I had the fantastic opportunity of being chosen as a Disney College Program participant. This was about a year long program where I took Walt Disney Company classes at Disney University and learned business first-hand working with the public in Orlando’s Disney theme parks. When my program ended, I moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina where I started another journey on my own. I enjoy traveling and experiencing new things so I wasn’t nervous; in fact, I was very excited! I attended a United Methodist Church named St. Andrew By-The-Sea. Again, I enjoyed services, volunteered during service events, and eventually, I transferred my membership. But, times got tough as life happens; Hurricane Matthew hit the island. I felt God moving in my life in the South, but I needed my family. I moved back home to Valpo in 2017, and of course, re-visited New Song each Sunday thereafter. I transferred my membership back to my home church, started volunteering with the children’s ministry, and got involved anyway I could. I was enjoying where I was at, but I sought out more. The Youth Director position was available and I was ecstatic. I felt God pushing me to the place I needed most in my life. Now as the Director, I am able to interact, teach, and learn from the youth of our church. I couldn’t be happier or more appreciative.
