Director of Childrens Ministries

Staff Photos    Hi!  I’m Jennie and in 2008 I was blessed with the opportunity to serve as the Director of Children’s Ministries here at Bethel. I am blessed with an excellent staff of volunteers to help facilitate children’s programming, from Sunday School, to VBS and Sports Camp, to fun family nights like Campfires and Movie Night. As a member of Bethel for 10 years, I have been involved in the United Methodist Women, Bible studies, children’s programs, youth activities, and so much more; I was asked to come to Bethel by a friend and loved what it had to offer everyone in my family. 

    My husband, Jim, and I just celebrated 15 years of marriage. We have 3 wonderful boys: Zachary (12), who is active in Boy Scouts and music; Andrew (9) who is involved in Cub Scouts, baseball and basketball; and Matthew (5), who just started Kindergarten and loves baseball. Before becoming a stay-at-home mom of this wonderful family, I worked as a Parole Officer and Community Corrections Specialist for 14 years with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. I graduated from Ohio University, where I studied criminology and was a member of the Marching 110!! I love to stay active at church, volunteering at my children’s schools, camping and exploring our beautiful world as a Cub Scout/Boy Scout leader, and being crafty as a member of TWIG 153 (Children’s Hospital).
