Since 2013, I have had the immense privilege of serving the body of Christ in Central, East and Southern Africa, joining vibrant reconciling communities in both remote locations and cosmopolitan cities. I never get tired of the beauty of the Global Church working together in unity, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and I feel called to the hard work of building right relationships to make that possible. As Chief of Staff, I support the UWM President’s office to strengthen that unity within our organization and to implement new initiatives for the flourishing of churches and leaders around the world.


While living in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, I met and married my husband Matt, and Congo is still in our hearts. We are currently in the Chicago for a season of equipping, and are enjoying all the bike paths, lakefront views, and pizza that the city has to offer!

Prayer Requests:

  • Wisdom for Jess as she supports the implementation of UWM’s strategic initiatives
  • Endurance for Matt as he completes a Masters in Architecture at IIT in Chicago
  • Rest in Christ and unity as a couple as we navigate transition this year
