Corporal Keith Dyke
President

12932919_10206383956303915_1897471557358834403_nThe supervisor of social and student services at Dallastown Area School District, Keith Dyke has been involved with 18 South Youth Ministries since 2008.

A born again Christian, husband, and father of three children, Keith is passionate about individuals being intentional with using the resources they have been given to make a difference in the world. His favorite part about 18 South is hearing stories from volunteers about the relationships they’re building with teens and how those teens are coming to know Christ.

“I want to see our community transformed by the love of God,” Keith said. “When I talk to youth in our community, I find that many of them don’t feel valued. If we can connect with them and connect them to Christ, then real transformation will occur. That’s what I am all about.

A native of Red Lion, Keith is a graduate of Red Lion Area Senior High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Juniata College. He attends Living Word Community Church. He served as a police officer with the York Area Regional Police Department for 18 years.

A graduate of Mercy High School in Baltimore, Sondra’s heart breaks for the hurting youth who frequent 18 South.

“I’ve seen good fruit come out of it…I’ve seen lives changed,” Sondra said. “It’s really cool when they’re sad that they are too old to attend the youth center. It means you’re doing something right.”

Carey Howard
Board Member

13466131_10153902248589775_2879043269827587952_nA skateboarding mentor, teacher, and advocate of more than 15 years, Carey Howard joined the board of directors of 18 South Youth Ministries in June 2014. He is the president of Howard Manufacturing Services LLC in York and has been skateboarding since he was 5 years old. He attends Living Word Community Church.

A graduate of North County High School in Maryland, Carey’s absolute passion is using skateboarding to reach unchurched youth.

“Fundamentally, I really believe in engaging youth and being an encourager. I want to catch kids at a certain age and impact them,” Carey said. “Skateboarding is a relational activity and a foundation builder. It’s meeting kids where they’re at. I can take skateboarding and create analogies for life.”

In his spare time, Carey also enjoys snowboarding, tinkering with cars, and spending time with his wife, Leah, and their three children: Camden, Keira, and Nadia.

For Carey, the most rewarding part of working with youth is witnessing them begin to understand salvation and apply biblical principles to their life.

“There are a lot of kids that just don’t have parents that talk to them and so they seek attention in really terrible ways,” Carey said. “They just want to be around people that care.”

“I just love the vision for the youth center. I think it’s a good place where people are being loved,” Jimmy said. “Scripture calls us to simply love people, and I think it’s being done really well there.”

An attendee of Providence Community Church in Spring Grove, Jimmy grew up on his family’s farm near Spring Grove. In his spare time, he loves riding dirt bikes.

When asked how he would encourage those who are considering becoming a volunteer at 18 South, Jimmy said, “Pick one kid over the next year and get to know them, and I think they’ll find they’ll be extremely surprised by what happens.”

She also co-owns The Bees Knees, a home goods and gift shop on Main Street in Red Lion, with her mother-in-law.

An attendee of Living Word Community Church, Becky always felt a calling to work with youth and began to do so by loving on the babies in the nursery at church.

“I began to feel God’s calling to work with teenagers. While there were many wonderful opportunities to do so at church, it wasn’t until I walked in the door of 18 South that a flood of emotion came over me and I knew that was where I needed to be,” Becky said.

Becky loves each and every kid and volunteer at 18 South and enthusiastically encourages anyone that may have a heart and listening ear for the hurting and underprivileged youth in our community to come check out 18 South!

“You just never know how a loving word or kind gesture can change the direction of a teen’s life,” said Becky.
