Jamie and Kinsey are the youth directors at Covenant Presbyterian Church. Jamie graduated from Eastern University in 2011 with a BA in Anthropology and Missions and went on to pursue and receive his MBA. Kinsey graduated from Eastern in 2016 with a degree in youth ministry. She is currently pursuing her graduate degree in School Psychology.
Jamie is a world-traveler, having grown up in Japan and traveled to most Asian countries. He grew up climbing volcanoes, playing basketball, volleyball, baseball, and soccer in his school. In addition, he reminisces on beautiful, quiet summers spent in mountains of Japan. He loves to integrate technology, to praise God with music, and to use alternative worship methods within youth group.
Kinsey grew up in Montgomery County playing a variety of instruments and experimenting with creativity from a young age. Not to brag, but she placed silver for a colored pencil drawing in 10th grade in a competition among the tri-state area Christian Schools. She's a fan of the more odd sports - including Kayaking, golfing, and rock climbing. She loves to work with students on problem-solving, integrating different art mediums, and communing with students through meals and retreats.
