1 Gen Youth Outreach


1 Generation is a safe place for 5th-12th graders to laugh, be crazy and get to know Christ better.  Senior Highers (8th – 12th grades) are led by Chelsea Carman and Junior Highers (5th-7th grades) are led by Donn Truax.  Both groups meet on the third floor of 33 Bleecker Street (the former YWCA).

Meet Our Directors:

Senior High Director: Chelsea Carman (8th Through 12th Graders)

Chelsea Carman Pic

I am a graduate from Gloversville High School (2010) and a 2015 graduate from Liberty University with a Bachelors in Psychology with a focus in Christian Counseling. I had a shot gun wedding back in 2013 (because when God tells you to do something you just do it!) so I married my amazing and supportive husband Ken Carman and we had our amazing son, Eli, in 2016! My personality surprises me everyday because I am someone you can’t fit into one category. I LOVE shopping (specifically at TJ Maxx), I love to play soccer and drink coffee (lots of it) – sometimes I do all of those things at the same time! I love Jesus with all my heart and I can’t put that affection into words. He truly is a Savior of souls!
