 Noah Vann
           Noah graduated from Freed-Hardeman University ('15), with a B.S. in Speech Communication and Bible. Serving the youth of the church and the                   community is something that both Noah and his wife Megan love to do. Noah firmly believes that it is important to TEACH young people. The                       young people are the next generation, they are the future leaders of the church and of our nation. If they are taught starting from a young age                   about God and what He wants from us, then we are doing what God wants us do to.

           Luke 2:52 tells us that Jesus grew in wisdom, stature, favor with God and in favor with all the people. Noah's goal with the Lafayette church of                       Christ youth group is that they youth will grow like Jesus did. Noah wants the youth to grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God.
