Director of Student Ministries
Kevin came to 2PC in 2016. He grew up in Augusta, GA (no, he doesn’t really play golf…at least not very well) and graduated from Covenant College. Kevin has been in youth ministry for over 17 years in South Carolina, Florida and Georgia before coming to Tennessee. He still loves youth ministry and can’t imagine doing anything else! Kevin is married to Nancy and has 3 children - Knox (2002), Mallory (2004) and Mary Cleo (2009). Oddly, Kevin roots for Notre Dame in football, Duke in basketball, and the New York Giants, Knicks and Mets. Kevin is honored to be a part of the great heritage of a strong and vibrant youth ministry here at Second and enjoys laughing a lot with our awesome staff!
Upper Grades Girls Director
Adrianne has been at 2PC since February 2003 –yes. 2003!– and absolutely loves Memphis! She grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and graduated from Auburn University (War Eagle!!). After graduation, she was a missionary with the International Mission Board in Nazareth, Israel for a year before returning to work in college ministry at Auburn for almost three years. After many years doing girls youth ministy, Adrianne is still in love with Jesus and loves her job.
Adrianne is married to Will Cranford, a North Carolina man, and they spend their time going to the Kroc center, watching tv shows, playing music, and getting overly competitive playing cards together. They have an addition to their family. His name is Ezekiel Cranford (aka ZEKE) and he is the cutest and coolest little boy in all of the world.
Adrianne loves Memphis, hanging with high school gals, and 2pc! She HIGHLY dislikes cats, smart cars, and word problems. Ask her anything about music, but never ask her to help you with math.

Louanne was born and raised and Bethlehem, PA. After studying at Rutgers University, NJ, Louanne married to her best friend Fran, who is a worship leader here in Memphis. While married for more than 36 years, Louanne has three grown children--a daughter wholives in Memphis, a son in Franklin, TN., and another son in Belize on the mission field, with my 4 grandchildren. After working and serving for many years in ministry, I consider it a privilege to serve alongside a team of young adults who want to share the love of Jesus and see the next generation changed for His glory!

MARY RAINE IVY

After graduation, she moved to Houston, TX, where she worked in youth ministry at Christ the King Presbyterian for two years. Although her time in Texas affirmed her passion for ministry and gave her a deep love for Tex-Mex and rodeos, she is excited to be back in the land of double names and pork barbecue. Mary Raine loves rollerblading, drinking coffee, going on walks, live music, and the Olympics. She is thrilled to be a part of an incredible staff and a ministry that impacted her deeply.
Junior High Director
Jarrod first entered middle school in 2002, and he's never quite left. Standing at a mere five foot seven inches he is sometimes, even now, mistaken for a junior higher. Rumor has it, this is the origin story for his sudden beard growth while he was at Covenant College. While there, he majored in something boring, did ridiculous things with his friends, and remembered his deep love for students. After God closed, bolted, and locked several doors of career options, he took his first job in youth ministry at a church in Atlanta. To blow off the inevitable steam from things like sleep depriving retreats, boisterous small groups, and unexpected Walmart runs, he enjoys the adrenaline rush of rock climbing, the cardiovascular strategy of soccer, and the calm-inducing quiet of reading. He began his official tenure at Second when moving to Memphis in October, 2018, driving a truck and pulling his beloved yellow Jeep Wrangler. He’s pumped to cart students around in his doorless stick-shift while reminding them of the fathomless wealth of knowing Jesus.
Reed Jostes is from Winter Haven, FL (central Florida) and graduated from the University of Florida in April 2017. His major was in family, youth, and community sciences with a minor in leadership. Both of Reed’s parents are teachers and he is child number three of four - an older sister and brother and a younger sister. He grew up playing sports and music and played baseball in college for his freshmen year. His passion for youth grew in college where he gained his experience serving middle and high school students. Reed hopes to continue pursuing youth ministry and potentially start taking seminary classes while spending his time here at Second Presbyterian Church.
Carly was born in Little Rock, Arkansas and was raised in Maumelle, Arkansas just 20 minutes outside of the capital. She graduated from Episcopal Collegiate School and began an Undergraduate Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. Throughout college, some of her favorite memories include joining Alpha Gamma Delta in Fall of 2014, being on College Staff for Ozark Mission Project, attending Orlando Project for a summer and weekly attending Campus Outreach her Junior and Senior year of College. She has always felt a calling to minister to Middle and High School students and is looking forward to her two years as Youth Resident.
Jordan is from a small town in western Kentucky called Princeton. Growing up he enjoyed anything that required a ball and physical activity, which transitioned into high school where he played baseball, football and basketball. He attended Murray State University and graduated with a degree in Engineering Physics. Throughout college, he was heavily involved with Campus Outreach; attending beach projects, serving in events, and leading weekly meetings. Alongside collegiate ministry, he also served in a local church volunteering in the youth ministry. Overtime, God began to develop a desire to love and serve middle and high school students with the gospel that had radically changed his life. He is so excited to grow a deep love for the city of Memphis and see what the Lord has in store during the next two years here at Second Pres.
