Pastor Janet has had a deep love for the Lord since childhood, growing up in the Lutheran church. In her earlier life she served God in healing ministry as a pediatric registered nurse with dying children. During their seven years as a United Methodist world missionary family, Janet worked as a community health nurse in Africa mainly teaching and caring for women, children and orphans. She has a passion for helping African orphans and has served on the board and staff of ZOE ministry, leading ZOE mission trips. After mission service, Janet’s call to underserved children led her to help start church based shelter programs for homeless children and families including Family Promise of Orlando and the Access Shelter in Ashland, Ohio. God called her to pastoral ministry in 1995 and she attended seminary. She served as a student and associate pastor at First UMC of Oviedo for six years and later pastored rural churches in North Carolina and Ohio. Most recently, Janet has served as a hospice chaplain in Ohio for the past two years.
