It’s great to meet you. My name is Jennifer Gingerich, and I’m an ordained Presbyterian (USA) minister serving as chaplain at Christian Care Communities in Louisville, KY. I serve the residents and staff of two adjacent independent living senior apartment buildings. I have been in professional ministry for 15 years, mostly as a long term care chaplain. Last year I was board-certified. I am married and have two 8-year-old daughters (fraternal twins). Right now we’re in the middle of Girl Scout cookie season!
I was interested in this course because of noticing how I respond internally to residents and worship leaders whose faith may be more certain or evangelical than mine. And from a different perspective, we have been having discussions about the Jewish and Muslim faiths in a book group I facilitate with residents.
