Tim FloydTim Floyd, who most recently served as youth pastor for the New Haven Church in Overland Park, Kansas, is the new Youth and Young Adult Ministries director for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference. He replaces Travis Sager, who accepted a call to pastor in the Illinois Conference.

A Union College graduate with a bachelor’s degree in religion education and a minor in history, Floyd served at several Adventist academies, including Sunnydale (Missouri), Milo (Oregon), Mount Pisgah (North Carolina) and Forest Lake (Florida) prior to coming to the New Haven Church. He also furthered his ministry as a global evangelist in Uganda, Africa.

“In addition to working with Broken Arrow Ranch, the Pathfinder club ministries and my other duties, I am especially excited to get started working with young adults throughout Kansas and Nebraska,” Floyd said. “I am eager to get to know not only the students at Union College, but also in public universities and graduates up to age 35. What I am most interested in hearing are their stories, as well as finding out how the church can better serve them.”

President Ron Carlson said, “Through Tim’s early ministry career, he has already shown himself an effective youth pastor, Bible teacher and chaplain. I’m confident that what he will bring to our conference Youth/Young Adult Department will make a difference for good. Tim has a passion to help this age group connect with Jesus and His church.”
