Alia Dyke was hired as 18 South’s Ministry Coordinator in March 2018 as was promoted to Executive Director May of 2019. With three years of experience in leadership with youth in the church, Alia believes strongly in motivating the next generation. Her passion for youth comes from her own high school years.
“I always had people pouring into me and believing in my life and dreams. I want to be that same voice for other teens,” Alia said. “If not for the faithful adults and young adults that dedicated their time and energy to my life and spirit, I would not be who I am today. I believe all youth need that time and love.” An attendee of Providence Community Church in Spring Grove, Pa., Alia graduated as a home school student in the Red Lion Area School District.
