This process began 2.5 years ago, when Kait officially joined Briercrest’s staff as YQ Coordinator. But her love for YQ began when she was just a retreater.
Kait completed the Kaléo leadership program
and then came to Briercrest, where she got involved with Youth Quake immediately.
She has served faithfully with Youth Quake for the past five years, going from student team member to Student Leader, Senior Student Leader, YQ Coordinator and, most recently, Assistant Director of Youth Quake.
It’s a well-deserved rise to the top, and very intentional leadership transition. Former Director AJ Crocker said,
“One of our stated institutional values here at Briercrest is proactively developing leaders. Kait is a leader that Briercrest has given the space to grow and who has responded by making a significant contribution. I’m really proud of her and very thankful for willingness to step into this role.”
With this transition, Youth Quake’s iconic duo is officially an uno.
“While I will pop-in and co-host a few things with her, Kait has the keys now and I couldn’t be happier to hand-off to a young leader as capable and faithful as Kait is."
Speaking of Youth Quake…
With a physical event in February off the table, what’s new with YQ this year?! Just about everything… including The Youth Quake Show happening live every Thursday evening!
We love this innovative approach to connecting with youth and their groups digitally. Kait and her team, plus co-host AJ, will be holding discussions on the big topics youth are facing today, and having a ton of fun doing it.
