Hall of Fame

The Betsy B.  Who's buying?  :)
From the very beginning of the blog I have been honoring students and adults who were of particular significance to my ministry over the years by inducting them into my own fictional Youth Group Hall of Fame.  To read their stories simply click on the links below.  To hear my dream about where I would put my Hall of Fame (and see what that has to do with the fabulous Betsy B, pictured at right), check out Terri Johnson's story!  Enjoy, and keep checking back.  The list will continue to grow with lots more First United Methodist Church of Kissimmee names, and I will be going back to recognize some more New Garden Friends Meeting, Quaker Lake Camp and Springfield Friends Meeting folks at a later date.  If you would like to nominate adults or students from any of my groups, please feel free to use the comment space at the bottom, or e-mail me!
