About Jane
  • Education: B.S. from the University of Arizons MA from Trinity Seminary Completing doctorate from Trinity
  • Experience: I have been the Director of Spiritual Growth since January 2004. I have been an "incare" intern since March 2003. I completed an earlier internship as a bible study leader in an inner city, drug/alcohol rehabilitation program. Since 1992, I have been actively involved in a number of other church ministries.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Although I create sermons on many topics, I often weave in one of two themes. First, when appropriate, I like to bring us into the current season. Because so many of us live in a city, we get out of touch with our natural surroundings. I believe that we benefit spiritually when reminded that we are a part of the cycles of God’s creation. Second, I like to remind people about the ongoing process of transformation and how we can/must particpate in our own santification.
  • Family: I have been a single parent of one son for many years. My son just turned 18, so I am looking forward to a new chapter in my life, where I can devote more and more time to becoming a minister. I live in Colorado Springs, a beautiful city that is within a days drive of many Rocky Mountain destinations. This past summer I ventured into Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I am planning several return visits to that area. I also love going to Taos and the rugged San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Practice, practice, practice
  • Hobbies: Camping, hiking

    Recently I drove into the mountains near Colorado Springs to see the last of the autumn color. The aspen trees were past their prime, and the setting was much quieter than it had been a few weeks earlier. Many leaves had already falled. I felt a hint of w
