Kasey Needham

Director of Children and Youth Ministries
Kasey is a graduate of Ball State University (2015). While at BSU, she majored in Vocal and General Music Education and minored in Sacred Music and Harp Performance. In 2013, she began working with the Children and Youth Choirs at High Street UMC. In 2014, she began the Director of Children and Youth Music Ministries. During her final semester at BSU, she felt God calling her into ministry rather than public teaching. God was stirring in the hearts of High Street UMC through the Fruitful Congregation Journey. Because of FCJ, High Street created a new position for a Children’s Ministry Director.  Kasey came on staff for Children’s Ministry in December 2015. In her ministry, she has been able to work with the Children’s Area Team to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for children and families. In July 2016, Kasey became the Director of Children and Youth Ministries.
Kasey loves working with children, youth, and families. Kasey desires to reach families in the Muncie community and surround them with encouragement and support as they grow in Christ. Kasey is passionate about intergeneration ministry and hopes to encourage all to engage with Christ and seek ways to grow through music, spiritual practices, service, community encouragement, and more!
Kasey hopes to become a Deacon within the United Methodist Church in the future as well as pursue Choral Conducting. She is excited about this ministry and what God has in store!
