  Our Staff    

George Ragsdale

Executive Director of Student Ministries


George was born in Roswell, New Mexico and graduated from McMurray University. He has been working in youth ministry for 30 years. We'd say he's a Mexican food connoisseur and can whip up some mean green chili chicken enchiladas. George is a huge fan of the Avengers, Pandora radio and playing jokes on everyone.

Contact him at grags@firstmethodist.org.

 Kale Wetekamm 

Director of Youth Ministry


Kale is from Mandeville, La and loves all things about our home state - LSU, Saints, the food, the family, the music, and the outdoors. He went to LSU and graduated in Natural Resource Ecology and Management. His favorite holiday is Mardi Gras, and he once went surfing in Alaska! He loves to be outside, and is probably out running around the LSU lakes right now! 

You can contact him at kwet@firstmethodist.org

Annie Barker

Youth Ministry Assistant


Annie is from Cornelius, NC and moved to Louisiana to be closer to her family and her best friend, her mom! She went to UNC Greensboro and graduated with a BFA in Drama with a concentration in Stage Management. Her favorite holiday is Christmas and has a passion for traveling to world. She loves the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and spends her free time cuddling with her crazy, rambunctious pup named Colter.
