Jean serves on the EMCC National Team as our Communications Editor. Her primary work is as the editor and writer of EMCC’s e-newsletter, EMCC Together. She is passionate about telling stories of God at work through the lives and ministries of the pastors and laypeople of The EMCC, global workers, and our partners. She loves interviewing and then writing their stories to inspire and challenge others to step into and remain faithful to what Jesus is calling them to do.
With over 20 years of service, first in the EMC Canada East District Office, and then in the National Office as part of the National Team, Jean has held a variety of administrative positions, the most recent being Executive Assistant to the President, from which she retired in 2017. After a year of rest, Jean has been employed part-time, helping primarily in Communications, and also with events such as General Assembly, another area where she brings experience.
Jean lives in New Hamburg, Ontario and is a member at Bethel EMC in New Dundee where she is on the Missions Committee and is involved with Women’s Ministries. She delights in hospitality, although this is currently curtailed due to COVID. Her four grown children and those they love are all held dear and bring special joy to her heart. She loves animals, is an avid reader, is learning Norwegian, and loves to travel with family members.
