Welcome Gina Abbas, new Student Ministries Director
August 9, 2018
I’m very excited to welcome Gina Abbas to our staff team as our new Student Ministries Director!
Gina will give oversight to Carol and the high school ministry as well as direct leadership to our middle school ministry. Gina brings 17 years of full time student and pastoral ministry experience in California, Grand Rapids (where served at Mars Hill as the middle school director), and Pennsylvania. She’s passionate and gifted at recruiting and equipping volunteers and developing ministry while building relationships with students.
Gina will play a unique role in our church as a Young Life Church Partner where, as a full-time staff member at Jamestown Harbor, part of her job description has her spending time each week as a member of a Young Life team at Riley Street Middle School, reaching students who may never walk into the doors of our church. We’re excited for one more way we get to partner with organizations in our community!
Gina, her husband Tim, and their three kids, Josh (16), Jenna (13), and Julia (6) will be moving from Pennsylvania and starting with us on August 20th. Join us in praying for their move and for Tim to find a job as a history teacher!
Additionally, let Ben Peters know if you can help Gina and her family find some temporary housing at a rental property, vacation home or even a great RV while they look for a permanent place!
You can reach Gina after August 20 at Gina.Abbas@harborchurches.org
