The Edge


Welcome to The Edge, our ministry designed for specifically for middle and high school students! It includes a live band, practical teaching, and guided discipleship groups (D-Groups).

We meet in our youth building "The Edge", as it's on the edge of the property. 

We also have Sunday School, Mission Trips, Bible Studies, choirs and much more.

We hope you'll come in and check out The Edge, connect with friends, mentors, and, most importantly, Jesus; and carry out your faith into the world and your life when you leave high school.

Meet Our Youth Ministry Director
Joy Hook
Youth Ministry Director

The youth are an amazing group of students, and the next generation of the church! I love seeing them as they develop their walk with God, as well as encouraging each other in that. I love working with students, and felt called out of college to work at the church. Although I wasn’t expecting to come back to Dexter UMC, God has brought me here and I could not imagine being anywhere else. This is the church I grew up in, and I am so blessed to be able to come and serve here alongside people who showed me what a follower of Christ looks like. 


Fun Fact: I can speak 3 languages and I’m working on a fourth!
