Meet Our 2018-2019 Interns

Jacob DavisJacob Davis is back with us again this year and is continuing to work with Skitch Matson and our Youth Department. Jacob Davis will be focusing on our High School Youth Group and Confirmation. A special word of congratulations to Jacob as well, for graduating from TCNJ this summer and starting at Princeton Theological Seminary in October! Jacob wants to become a youth pastor after seminary.


Pearl Quick is also working with Skitch and our Youth Department this year, focusing on our Middle School program. Pearl met our youth when they traveled to the Farminary, and joined last year on the IGNITE trip, falling in love with the students and the program. She is in her third year at Princeton Theological Seminary, hoping to start a farm when she graduates.


Mary Kyner is starting with our college ministry and working with Skitch in connection with the Wesley Foundation. You may have seen her around last year as part of the Feed Truck Café team, having strong ties to the Feed Truck Ministries. Mary is a third-year student at Princeton Theological Seminary, with hopes of engaging or starting some sort of entrepreneurial college ministry in the future.


Lillie Judge is a freshman at Westminster Choir College studying vocal performance and music education. Lillie will be working with Tom Shelton this year and accompanying our children and youth choirs. The Methodist church has a special place in her heart because her mom is a church musician, so she has grown up in the church. She’s happy to begin a new chapter in her personal faith journey here at Princeton UMC.





Arthur EricksonArthur Erickson was born in Bulgaria and at the age of eight was adopted by a family in the small town of Williamsport, PA. He instantly gravitated toward music. Before Arthur could speak English, he started playing the piano, viola and then the organ. At the age of 15, he was given the opportunity to play the organ at a small Lutheran Church and at 16 he earned the position of organist and choir director at United Methodist Church in Williamsport. While working at the church, he still had time to participate in competitions playing his viola and won awards statewide. Arthur attended Lycoming College, earning his Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance and in Business Administration. Arthur traveled from Europe to north Africa then on to India after graduating, learning music from each country. Currently, Arthur is finishing his last semester of his masters degree in Sacred Music and Choral Conducting at Westminster Choir College.
