About Jennifer

Since 2017, I have had the honor of serving at WDA’s Headquarters outside of Atlanta, GA as the Director of Generosity, overseeing WDA’s donor relationships, fundraising, financial services, marketing & communications.  What an honor to have a hand in ministering with the Body of Christ through an organization that seeks to promote discipleship around the world.

I am part of a long lineage of missionaries, although as a child I considered myself a “fake MK” since my family was stationed Stateside while my father served as the U.S. Director of Africa Inland Mission for two and half decades.  Because of the unique “inside view” I had of my dad leading a missions organization (able to witness his amazing spirit of humility and tireless work ethic!), I felt pretty convinced at a young age that I could not bear the same responsibility of leadership, or even ministry work.  Of course, the Lord had different ideas about me, and as I grew in my faith, gifts, and calling, and started to understand the importance of availability and obedience to Christ, and the sheer NEED for discipleship, God continued to guide me down a pathway of ministry and ministry leadership.

Under the grace and tutelage of WDA’s executive leadership, I continue to grow in my leadership abilities, and have the most amazing Gifts Team, Payroll & Accounting Team, and Comms Team who work tirelessly and with humility to serve our WDA staff members, ministry teams, and donors. WDA has developed such a healthy familial work environment that has afforded myself and many of our staff members to heal, to grow, and to find a healthy work/life balance that is honoring to both ourselves and to God. I am so blessed!

Personally, I am very passionate about walking alongside the hurting and pointing them to Jesus, doing spiritual battle in the heavenlies through prayer, and worshiping God with everything that I am.  I am loved and supported by my amazing husband, Shaun, and daughters, Gabby and Lola. They make life so fun. 😊  Several years back, when Jesus really solidified my identity in Him, He gave me a new name – “worshipbird”. This sums up that my very existence is to bring Him praise, to rely on His perfect care and provision, and to sing new songs to Him that others might hear and praise Him too.

Thank you for your prayers for me and for WDA. They mean so much.
