Jeff is an alumni from San Jose State with a Business degree and is very familiar with the Silicon Valley! He has a strong passion to see people reach their God given potential for His Kingdom purposes! As a matter of fact, Jeff recently returned back to GrX after spending 3 years as a missionary in Shanghai, China. During his time in Shanghai, God used him to grow ministries that now reach out to hundreds of people! He still holds close relationships with those in Shanghai and is very excited about what God is doing in Asia. It was also during his time in Shanghai that he met his beautiful wife Helen.
He now is living in a multi-cultural family as Helen was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. They recently got married this past July and are now back in the Bay Area together! God is good and He is good all the time! Let's journey together!

Jenn is humbled and excited to serve as the director of KidZone. This role so neatly encompasses her love for Jesus, little ones, children with special needs, and so much more.
As a mom of three (Kylie, Jace and Ryland), wife of one (George), with a background in speech language pathology and years of teaching sign and play classes for little ones, Jenn uses all of her experiences and learned lessons to impact KidZone as the Lord leads.
Her heart beats for finding ways for infants and toddlers to really learn about God's love and simple Bible truths. After much prayer and creativity bursts, PowerPLAY was born and is continuing to grow! PowerPLAY is an infant/toddler curriculum that uses play, music, hands-on activities, and sign language to share the love of God with little ones. Watching little ones praise the Lord is AWESOME - come to KidZone andcheck it out!
