About Jen

Living in Africa, Jen met Terry Andrews, Founder of CIC, in Arusha back in February 2011 - and was immediately drawn to all that God was doing in this humble, unique ministry. It reflected her own life passions - inspiring and equipping the local indigenous body, reaching and discipling children, and going where no one else has been with the Gospel. For her, joining CIC is a personal surprise that the Lord had planned her whole life - surpassing her wildest dreams. Sharing the love and truth of Jesus with a continent of children is an unspeakable privilege and joy. He alone gets the glory!
