Meet Megan Smith

YPM is proud to introduce the new young adult devotion contributor for April, Megan Smith. Take a second to learn more about her and check back on Wednesday, the 3rd, to read her first of four devotions.

Megan Smith, 19, is from Lancaster, PA and is currently a freshman at Eastern University. At Eastern, located in St. Davids, PA, Megan is pursuing a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a minor in Biology. In the future, she hopes to attend either graduate school or seminary to further her education. Recently, Megan served in an internship with the Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner, assisting with the ministries of the GBOD Division of Ministries with Young People in the Northeastern Jurisdiction, as well as urban outreach to young people in Wilmington, DE. Megan is a young leader who has had the opportunity to preach at the Peninsula-Delaware Youth Rally in 2011 and at the Northeastern Jurisdiction Youth Convocation in 2012. She also attended the Duke Youth Academy for Christian Formation at Duke Divinity School in 2011.

On campus, Megan is involved in the Leadership Fellows Scholarship Program and Y.A.C.H.T. (Youth Against Complacency and Homelessness Today). Some of her other passions include public speaking, writing, photography, and music. Presently, Megan is continuing to discern the call the God has placed on her life by examining the skills, talents, and gifts that have been cultivated in her throughout her spiritual journey thus far.
