Jack  was born and raised in Eastern Iowa. After moving around several times, he ended up back in Iowa and came home to Grace. He has been the sexton since February 2014, and the secretary since January 2016. He's also involved in the choir, the fellowship committee, and our annual Christmas play.


In his spare time, Jack enjoys gardening and composting, hiking, tutoring, and writing novels and poetry.

Jack is a vegan, but we love him anyway.
