Hey there! I’m Capri Mills, the youth minister at PVA church. Together with my husband, Jeremiah, we lead the youth ministry at PVA to help encourage and teach youth to seek God, love others, and to let God set their hearts ablaze for Him. I studied at Northpoint Bible College where I got my BA in Student Ministry and Biblical Studies and also met Jeremiah! Jeremiah also attended Northpoint Bible College and got his BA in Intercultural Ministry and Biblical studies. Having both grown up in minister’s homes, we are excited to lead the youth ministry here at PVA. Besides being passionate about Jesus and telling others about Him, we love traveling, exploring the outdoors, and are always up for eating a good meal!
