Adrian Acevedo

Youth Ministry Coordinator

Adrian Acevedo has lived in NYC her whole life: she was born in Washington Heights, grew up in Harlem and currently living in Astoria. After attending college at the University of Delaware, Adrian moved back to the city and started attending Redeemer. She first worked as the Children’s Ministry Intern and has been in her current role as the Youth Ministry Coordinator since September 2015.

In her role, Adrian supports the Youth Ministry Director in event planning and communications. She also recruits and communicates with the volunteer youth leaders that help run youth group at W83 on Friday evenings, and assists in building mentor relationships with middle and high school students. Her favorite part of the job has been the kids she gets to work with. “It’s a privilege to get to know them and walk with them through whatever they're going through,” she says.
