Michelle Zegarski - WyldLife 203 Director

I am Michelle Zegarski and I have been leading in Naperville & Aurora for over 20 years! Through those years of ministry I met and married my husband, Mike, and enjoyed the addition of our kids, McKaela (13) and Eli (11) to our family. I run WyldLife for 7th and 8th graders and love the chance to share the adventure of life with Christ with both kids and leaders.​ I love the way Young Life makes sure we show kids the adventure life is meant to be when we live it with our Creator. I am grateful to be a part of walking alongside kids and helping them figure out where God fits in their world or more accurately where they fit in his. Beyond that life stays busy with our own family figuring out our adventures with a 6th and 9th grader!​

Eli Margaron - Metro Capernaum Director, Capernaum 203 Developer
My name is Eli Margaron and I lead Capernaum. My husband, Matt, and I have two kids, Emma and Leah. When I was in high school, Young Life was a safe, fun, and consistent place for me to grow in my faith. As an adult, I love helping continue this tradition and make Young Life possible for teens in our community.

Pat Doane- 204 WyldLife Student Staff 
I am team leader for District 204 WyldLife and a work a little with Neuqua Valley Young Life. This is my fourth year leading WyldLife and my second year at Neuqua. I’m a junior attending North Central College, majoring in communications. I lead because of how big of an impact Young Life at Naperville Central had on me. It’s a privilege and a blessing to be a part in hanging out with middle schoolers and high schoolers, seeing them grow up as individuals, and most importantly finding their way to God. ​

Curtis Drevets - Naperville North Student Staff 

My name is Curtis Drevets. I have a unique passion for flaming hot Cheetos, and love playing Ping Pong. You can always find me outside some where getting my shoes muddy. I lead at Naperville North Young Life because it gets me out of my college bubble and puts me around real people talking about real things and sharing the real truth of the gospel.
