About Me

IMG_5988 (1)Hi. I’m Jessica.

I’m the Associate Pastor at Grace Community United Methodist Church in Shreveport, LA.
I have a passion for missions and social justice – I want to work to bring God’s kingdom here, now.

My journey here:
I was born and raised in Shreveport, LA.
I went to LSU in Baton Rouge for my B.A. in English, with a focus in Creative Writing.
My next stop was Duke Divinity School for my M.Div.
After graduating, I volunteered for a year in Israel/Palestine through Global Ministries.
And now I’m back in Louisiana, serving my first church appointment at Grace Community.

Some things I like:
traveling. triathlons. reading. writing. dancing.
my dog. my cat.
chocolate chip cookies. the color orange. spreadsheets.
the number 22.

Want to know more?
I’m always up for coffee!
