Kristy is the proud mother of three amazing, (sometimes truly wild), young men, Andrew, Nicholas, and Sam, who always keep her on her toes and thoroughly entertained.
She enjoys spending time outdoors with her family camping and going on new adventures. Her hobbies include hiking, gardening, and kayaking at the Nimisila Reservoir. She also loves all kinds of animals and has several different types of pets. Kristy enjoys traveling, exploring our amazing local geology, reading, writing, and learning about anything and everything.
Kristy has had a lifelong love of environmental science since her days as a girl scout and she earned her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies from Kent State University in 2018. She hopes to use this education to find sustainable solutions to problems which are harming ecosystems and disproportionately impacting people who are struggling.
As Pastor of Community Development since 2016, Jennifer leads Harmony Springs community engagement and program development in connection with the community and overseeing the Harmony Springs Garden prior to Kristy coming on board.
Jennifer lives in Green, Ohio with her husband of two decades and two teen children.
She graduated from United Theological Seminary in 2017 and was ordained a Minister in the Disciples of Christ in 2019.
Jennifer brings a passion for connecting the church with the community through participation in community events, outreach, and aid as needs arise. Jennifer is excited about the future and where God will continue to lead her.
We are excited to have Jennifer's help in our effort to build bridges with the community of Green especially those who are searching for a church home or have no church affiliation.
