Rev. Jamison received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Divinity degree from Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington D.C. During those years, she served as a member of The United Methodist delegation to the National Council of the Churches of Christ, expanding her understanding of not only The United Methodist Church, but other member denominations. This also exposed her to some very wonderful role models for leadership by women of faith.

Director of Kinderfolk Preschool
My name is Julia Umstead and I have lived in Lewisburg for the past 6 years with my husband and 10 year-old daughter. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 2004 with a B.S. in Rehabilitation Services and in 2010 with my M.Ed in Adult Education. I was a preschool teacher from 2005-2011 at the Bennett Family Center at Penn State University. In my years at the Bennett Center, I had the opportunity to mentor early childhood university students and acquire certificates in extensive early childhood development trainings. I had also conducted trainings pertaining to sensory integration and literacy in the classroom at early childhood conferences. I am very excited to be teaching young children again in my new place at Kinderfolk.
Youth Group Leader
As BMUMC's youth leader, Mindy Moore has been at Beaver since 2016 when she and her family moved to Lewisburg. She started the United Youth Group in 2018, intentionally making it a cooperative ministry among several churches. The youth group is open to those in 6th through 12th grade and shifts meetings to each of the churches that support the the United Youth Group. She is happily married to Jeffrey and a proud mom to Hannah. Although she loves Lewisburg, part of her heart is still in Texas.
If you have any questions about the United Youth Group or would like to join, please contact Mindy.
