Senior Director of Connections and Community Life
Jeannie grew up in a small town outside Orangeville, Ontario. She attended the local Presbyterian church as a child and youth, and knew God, but not Jesus. She was married in 1993 to John and has been blessed with 3 wonderful children. She and her family moved to Barrie in 1999 and they started attending Harvest Bible Chapel in 2003. It was then that Jeannie came to understand her need for a relationship with Jesus Christ and completely surrendered her life to him. She was baptized in the chilly waters of Lake Simcoe on August 16, 2003.
Jeannie has a heart for children and feels very blessed to work with them in, and outside, the church. She also loves to be outdoors, especially by the water and preferably on the beach!
One of Jeannie’s favourite verses is I Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”. Jeannie remarks that, “it is only through his grace that I have been set free, so I will strive daily to be joy filled and thankful in ALL circumstances, so that other’s will see Christ and live”.
