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.
