St. John’s is very happy to welcome Jeanny Hwang to the church and to her new role as coordinator for Children’s Ministry.
We have hired Jeanny (pronounced “Jenny”) Sarah Hwang to be our new Children’s Ministry coordinator. Jeanny has a passion for helping young people to build a personal relationship with Jesus, to learn to love and forgive (yourself and others), and to nurture faith in a healthy and positive environment.
Jeanny comes to St. John’s after having served in youth ministry and children’s ministry for 10 years as a volunteer and for the last 13 years as a pastor. After earning a Bachelor of Christian Education degree in Youth and Family at Tyndale University, she further pursued a Master of Divinity at Tyndale Seminary. Her ministry experience includes preaching, teaching, administration, leadership, curriculum and training development, generational reconciliation, and pastoring. She has also studied graphic design at OCAD and has enjoyed and been grateful to serve in ministry with this God-given gift for over two decades. In her free time, she loves cooking, listening to music, home decorating, watching movies, reading, play sports and hanging with friends and family.
During August, Jeanny met with several parents and parishioners, and now the teaching team is preparing plans for the 2016-2017 school year. Jeanny is taking over from Chantal Sathi who left to take a position with RZIM.
Please welcome Jeanny as she begins her ministry at St. John’s on September 1st!
