Ms. Brandi Cade
Interim Director of Youth Ministries

Brandi has been at Platt Springs UMC since 2008. She’s an active member of our church and you can see her teaching K-5th grade Sunday School, leading adult Bible studies, and singing in the choir. In fall of 2016, she answered the call to assist the Director of Youth Ministries as the youth coordinator. In August 2017, we welcomed her into a new role as our Interim Director of Youth Ministries. Brandi looks forward to this new adventure and pathway that God is leading her down. 
 
Brandi’s go to verse is Romans 8:28: 
We know that all things will work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.

Ms. Melissa Busby
Director of Children’s Ministries

Melissa has been a member of Platt Springs UMC for over 20 years and has served on the staff since 2009. Her favorite saying is: “If you want to hear God laugh…..tell him YOUR plans”. When God called her into ministry with children, she says she was “shocked, but delighted”. Melissa believes it is an honor to share the love of Christ with the children of Platt Springs as well as the Springdale & West Columbia areas. Her ministry with the children of PSUMC affords her the beauty of working directly with her own son Jacob.
