Meghan Smith

Assistant to Student Ministry

Meghan works closely with our Velocity Student Ministries as an Administrative Assistant and has a passion for serving teens and their families. She was a teen in our Velocity youth group from 7–12 grade and never wanted to leave. She met her husband at a Velocity Family Picnic in 2008 and they have been serving together in Velocity ever since!

Meghan attended Ashland University and earned a Middle School Teaching degree and began working at Northwest shortly after graduation. She loves to plan high energy events, keep students and parents connected—with each other and the ministry—and helping to love teens through those pivotal years.

If you see Meghan in the foyer at church you can expect her to be chasing down her wild little kids, perhaps with one hanging upside down under her arm. While she is almost always making a joke or goofing around, her heart is seriously dedicated to raising kids that love Jesus and showing teens how awesome it is to have a genuine relationship with Him.
