Jen Abercrombie is one of several staff members who had the privilege of growing up at Connection Point Church. After serving on staff at a few other churches in student, children’s, and preschool ministries, she finally made her way back to us in December 2009 as our Kid Ministry Director.
Even though she works with kids, Jen’s job is not all fun and games, but because she loves what she does, it often seems that way. On top of planning big summer events like Create-A-Camp and Kids Camp, she gets to plan fun, educational, and engaging Sunday morning and Wednesday evening experiences for elementary age children, as well as train and coordinate all of our lovely Kid Ministry volunteers. While Jen has a huge passion for leading kids, her favorite part of her role at Connection Point is helping parents be the chief spiritual influencers in their children’s lives.
Jen is the life of the party. She has fun everywhere she goes, has never met a stranger, and lives to laugh. When Jen isn’t at church or her sons’ sporting events, she enjoys relaxing with a project, particularly refinishing furniture or anything else that requires using power tools. But her favorite way to relax is on a cruise ship, eating interesting food and spending time with some of her favorite people.
Jen studied Religious Education at Southwest Baptist University (Go Bearcats!), where she met her husband Jamon. Jen and Jamon married in 1999 and have two teenage boys, Taylor and Jordan. Their athletic family is rounded out by their two dogs KC and Chief.
