Ministry Team                


 Student Ministry Intern: Jarrod Hoffman

Jarrod Hoffman is the Student Ministry Intern. Jarrod graduated from Covenant College with a degree in math. He enjoys reading books and drinking coffee. His favorites are Harry Potter, anything Ender's Game, and classics like To Kill A Mockingbird. He loves being outside and playing soccer, spikeball, and slack lining (even though I'm not very good), or anything sport related. He also loves students and desperately wishes to see them experience the fathomless wealth of knowing Christ.

Student Ministry Assistant: Katie Gilbert

Katie has been an intern with our senior high girls for two different summers and has volunteered her time since then with both our junior high and senior high ministries, now joining us on staff. She graduated with a degree in Restaurants, Hotels, and Meetings Management from the University of Alabama. Katie enjoys being outside, puzzles, knitting, and the many opportunities for silliness and laughs that youth ministry affords. More importantly, she has a passion for coming alongside students as they embrace the overwhelming satisfaction of the Gospel.
