Jen loves students and seeing them meet God is tranformative ways. Jen has been on staff with InterVarsity for 15 years and her heartbeat is to see mission go forward on campus, growing ministry and individuals. Her vision is to see every campus with a nursing program have a Nurses Christian Fellowship where students have an opportunity to meet Jesus at the intersection of their faith and vocation.
The average nurse interacts with more than 500 patients a year? What if these nurses saw every patient interaction as an opportunity to share the love of Jesus? What if these nurses were trained and equipped to provide meaningful spiritual care for their patients? Imagine the kind of impact this could have on the world!
NCF Student Ministries exists to encourage, equip and empower nursing students for a lifetime of service in healthcare. I am grateful for the opportunity to lead our network of NCF student chapters to bring the love and hope of Christ into their nursing schools!
In addition to Nurses Christian Fellowship, Jen is the associate regional director in the Lakes and Plains region of InterVarsity, giving leadership to the upper peninsula of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. She is passionate about spiritual formation and women's leadership development. Jen lives in the Madison Wisconsin area with her husband, Chad, and children, Hannah and Jack. As a family they like to adventure (camping, traveling, and exploring) together and check out new coffee shops. Jen likes reading, knitting, and hanging out with friends.
