Katie Jarmer was born and raised in Portland Oregon. She fell in love with Vancouver when she moved to the Vancouver area to attend Lifeteams: school of youth outreach. Post high school graduation, Katie moved to Germany do attend Bodenseehof bible school. It was there that she fell in love with working with youth and wanted to pursue this passion further. She started the Lifeteams program and learned about meeting youth where they are at, loving people because Christ first loves us, and how to build connections with youth through relationships. During the program she had an internship opportunity in North Vancouver that has now lead her to being apart of the North Shore.
Katie is starting with Youth Unlimited as an apprentice. She will be doing her apprenticeship for one year. Katie loves relationships and connection. She loves combining that with coffee and a rainy afternoon at JJ Bean. Katie has a welcoming presence and youth feel safe talking with her. She is a thoughtful listener and after a mentoring meeting youth leave feeling heard, and cared for. Katie loves sharing about the way Jesus has impacted her life. Chances are as you get to know her she can’t help but share about how God is at work in her life.
