Anthony Harrison is our Interim Director of Youth Ministries, Anthony Harrison. Anthony comes to us from First United Methodist Church in Normal, Illinois. He discerned a call to ordained ministry as a Deacon in the UMC and is currently working on that process while completing his MDiv at Boston University.
Before moving to the Boston-area, Anthony earned a Bachelors in education from Illinois State University. He did his student teaching at Olympia High School in Stanford, IL. Last year he served as a ministry intern with children and teens at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waltham.
Anthony will provide programming and personal support for our teens who want a practical faith and real answers to tough questions, in addition to being a relatable role model and mentor. He loves the energy, humor, and questioning nature that youth bring, and will match that for them in his ministry. His starting date was yesterday, October 1.
Anthony lives in Framingham. He expects to earn his Master of Divinity degree in the Spring.
