TPC youth exists as a ministry of Trinity Church to meet high school and middle school students where they are and to bring the gospel to bear in their particular reality. We seek to move students towards Christ as they move towards adulthood and to invite them into the mission of the church today. We want to be a ministry where broken people can freely bring their doubts, fears, hopes, and dreams and be met with the love and grace of the Gospel every day. Our goal is to see students know Jesus more deeply through being known and loved by this ministry.
Meet Blythe Coker, Our Director for Youth
Blythe is an Atlanta native who received a degree in English at the University of Georgia. While in college, Blythe was actively involved in the campus ministry, Reformed University Fellowship. Through volunteering at her local church, she discovered a love for high school and middle school students and a desire to help them know the love of Jesus more deeply. She had the opportunity to volunteer with the youth group and from there worked most of her summers as a youth intern; one summer for her local church, Redeemer Presbyterian, and another in Greenville, SC at Mitchell Road Presbyterian. It was through these summers in ministry that Blythe developed a passion for youth ministry and felt called to pursue it full time. After working and training for a year as an RYM Intern in Fort Worth, TX, Blythe is thrilled to be at Trinity to serve and love the community of this church and Asheville at large.
Blythe loves to read, drinks A LOT of coffee and enjoys going on walks with her dog, Fitz. Some of her favorite books include East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Union with Christ by Rankin Wilborn, and Liturgy of the Ordinary by Tish Harrison Warren. Her ideal day would include a long brunch, hiking, craft beer, lots of tacos and friends.
