MEET JACOB KELLY OUR NEW YOUTH AND FAMILY MINISTER!

 

 

     Greetings, all! My name is Jacob Kelly and I am the new Youth and Family Minister here at First St. John. I am from Toledo, Ohio. I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I have also obtained a Certificate in Youth Ministry from the University of Dayton and lastly, I am currently in the process of obtaining my Master’s degree in Youth and Family Ministry from Grand Canyon University. 

 

     For the past four years I have been a volunteer youth minister at my local parish, helping out with their 7th and 8th grade faith formation class. I feel this experience has given me the necessary tools to be successful here at First St. John. When I am not volunteering, you can find me on the tennis court or cheering for my favorite hockey team, the Columbus Blue Jackets.

 

     If you have any questions or just want to say hi, my door is always open. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
