Welcome Jenn McDowell, Director of Faith Formation & Nurture
We are so pleased to welcome Rev. Jennifer (Jenn) McDowell as the new Director of Faith Formation and Nurture. Jenn has excellent skills in leading creative worship with multiple generations, coordinating educational ministries for all ages, is a trained Godly Play specialist, with a passion for faith formation in families. She has a Masters of Divinity with an emphasis in children and family ministry from Bethel Seminary and is ordained in the United Church of Christ. She has served UCC churches in Colorado and most recently served at Arlington UCC. Her new ministry at Palms will focus on faith formation for all ages, with a special emphasis on adult education and children and family ministry. Although Rev. McDowell is ordained, her work at Palms is in a lay staff position as Director of Faith Formation and Nurture. As Jenn begins her work this first week of January, Pastor Holly is also beginning her transition from the Associate Pastor for Nurture to Associate Pastor for Community and Connection, working with new disciples, cross-generational fellowship, community networking and faith formation groups. These two positions will combine the work of three previous positions: Director of Children and Family Ministry, Associate Pastor for Nurture, and Director of Connection.
Under Session’s leadership, Holly and Jenn will faithfully work together with our congregation to strengthen our discipleship to one another and to our community. We are thrilled to welcome Pastor Jenn’s vision, energy, and creativity to Palms!
