Jill has been a member of CPC for over 10 years. Before becoming Director of Children’s Ministry, she has served in Children’s Ministry in various capacities. As a Children’s Ministry volunteer, God used her knowledge and experience as a Registered Dietitian and public school teacher to share God’s love to families and children. From cooking demonstrations on the importance of family mealtime, teaching Sunday School, to serving as the Interim Children’s Ministry Director, Jill began to feel God’s “nudge” into full-time ministry.

Jill realized that God’s “nudge” was a calling and she is excited to be serving the church in this role. She has a passion for developing creative and relevant ways to teach God’s Word to children as well as to inspire parents with strategies on weaving spiritual truths into the rhythm of everyday life.

Jill lives in Gainesville with her husband, Mark, and their children Jonathan and Kate. In addition to spending time with her family, Jill enjoys taking her dog, Lulu, on walks, running and yoga.
