Jeff comes to Richmond via Boston and Philadelphia with Elizabeth and their two daughters.

If he’s not cooking or enjoying music he’s probably taking pictures of his kids (though the ideal is all three simultaneously). He’s seen U2 more times than he’s paid taxes.
Nancy has served in children’s ministry at her churches in Michigan, Ohio, Florida, and now at her new home right here in Virginia. Education has been a part of every phase of her adult life. She met her husband, Jim, while they were teaching together at a Christian school in Ypsilanti, MI. His job moved them to Ohio and then Florida where she homeschooled some configuration of their three sons for 7 years. Once the boys were all at The Geneva School, her role changed to being a room mom, chauffeur, team mom and also Kindergarten aide. We’re so blessed to have her serving here with us!
