Jen – sometimes known as Opera Jen or Singin’ Jen – currently spends time at the mic during worship making a “joyful noise” and working behind the scenes on all things technology related – including Facebook, the website, and the newsletter. Every great once-in-a-while, she fills in and shares a message (never, however, without tissues)!
Jen has been part of the Journey family since the early days. She has served on the Journey Leadership team and Board of Trustees in the capacity of Education Chair and, most recently, Staff Parish Relations Chair.
She moved with her family to Maricopa in the summer of 2006. A life-long Methodist, she had been a long-time member of St. Matthew United Methodist Church and spent a good bit of those first years in Maricopa missing the St. Matthew church family. As Holy Week 2008 rolled around, the family found Journey – on the very first Sunday the Journey congregation worshiped outside of someone’s private home. They were thrilled that a United Methodist church was here and even more pleased that the casual, family atmosphere suited their growing family perfectly! The Saltas have loved watching Journey grow – and have been blessed to grow right along with it – and they look forward to service, fellowship, and fun for a long time to come.
