Music Director, Jim Youngworth

Jim has been providing music in churches since he was 11 years old, and has been with BUMC for 25 years. He began here as the organist and became the Music Director when the previous Director retired in 2005.  Jim enjoys including both traditional and more contemporary music in the worship services. He resides in Easton with his wife and sons, Alex and Jacob. 

Children’s Music Leader, Shari Sprong

Shari has been a member of the choir for 10 years and has also led the children’s music in Sunday school for several years. She enjoys sharing her love of music with children and helping them learn about Jesus and the Bible through song. She teaches private
music lessons (piano, flute, recorder, guitar, and ukulele) in her home and spends as much time as possible in her garden.


As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to
Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill
this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving
to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.
