Jennifer Gingerich

Hi all,

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.
