Director of Family Ministries

Delilah Twombly


Hey there!  My name is Delilah Twombly.  I’m the Director of Family Ministries here at FUMC Chiefland which means I get the wonderful pleasure of working with the youth and children.  I have an Associate of Arts degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. 

Whether through volunteer work or professionally, I have been working with children and youth even as a preteen myself.  I have been a member here at First Chiefland since I was a child.  This particular church and the United Methodist church as a whole have a special place in my heart.  I am blessed to be able to serve as a leader and a teacher to our youngest parishioners. 


Amy Brodahl

Amy Brodahl has been our Music Director since 2004.  Amy has a true passion for music, being a professional singer in the past and has sung in church groups her whole life. Her philosophy is, ” Choir is a church within a church for me. It feeds my soul!” To compliment her music talent, she also has taught in the public school system for 11 years before moving to Chiefland in 2003 where she homeschooled her own children into adulthood. To keep life interesting, Amy and her husband have owned a marine canvas and upholstery business for the last 16 years and recently bought A&M manufacturing.  Amy’s talent of music, teaching and amazing work ethic blends together for perfect harmony!
