Megan Smith

I was raised here in beautiful Scott Valley and grew up attending both Fort Jones Community Church and Scott Valley Berean Church, and this makes me that much more excited about Valley Wide Youth Ministry.  God got ahold of my life when I was 15 and it’s been a crazy adventure ever since.  I graduated from EHS in 2003 and and graduated with a Bachelors in Youth Ministry from Colorado Christian University in 2008.  I moved back to Scott Valley in 2012.  I was married in August, 2016 to my wonderful husband, Jacob Smith who is a Sous Chef and we are expecting our first child in September, 2017. God has given me a love for photography, traveling, the outdoors and a greater passion for discipleship and to see young women living out an authentic faith in a growing and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  This has become my prayer for the ministry of Valley Wide Youth Ministry.  I’m so excited continue to see what God does!!
Brett McMorris As a Freshman in college God shook me out of pursuing a career in Chemistry and into following His call to minister to adolescents and their families.  At the ripe old age of 27 God made it very clear that He was moving me to Scott Valley for His purpose.  A month later – April 2002, I moved from the desert to the mountains and God continues to use this very weak man to show His glory.  I met Stephanie when she moved here in 2008 and talked her into marrying me ten months later.  Our boys – Ian , Caed, and Rhys– have added joy and spice to our lives.  In 2014 our foster daughter, Crystal, added to the joy of our home. In June, 2016 Crystal graduated and is now beginning her college adventure. My prayer for my family remains that God would show how amazing He is through us.  God began to show us a new answer to that prayer when the idea came up to join the youth ministries of Fort Jones Community and Scott Valley Berean.  Shortly after that it became clear that it also meant sharing a youth pastor between the two churches.  As of January 2014 we have started that adventure, calling it Valley Wide Youth Ministry.
