BOARD OF DIRECTORS
STAFF / Interns / volunteers
I move the vision and mission of Sojourn Network forward by implementing our strategic plan, serving the Executive Director with special initiatives, leading and managing the staff and volunteers, visiting network churches for care and encouragement, and managing our main programs: church planting, church adoptions, and pastoral care so that the mission of Sojourn Network can advance and our pastors are well-cared for, supported, and trained for gospel-centered ministry.
I create and develop new content, implement strategic communications, and curate ideas for Sojourn Network, so that they can continue to advance the cause of Christ in helping pastors lead healthy churches. In the places I've lived I've found myself helping churches and networks recognize and leverage that oft-forgotten asset — their content. Planning, producing, and promoting healthy communication and quality content with this team is a real treat. Also, I am a self-proclaimed karaoke king (just ask my wife!).
As the Operations Manager I help push Sojourn Network’s mission of planting, growing, and multiplying gospel-centered churches forward. Whether it is budget and finances, data and analytics, donor management, information technology, project management, human resources, administration, or assessment management, I am here to help. I was hired in July 2015 and have the distinct pleasure of working alongside my brother, Dave Owens (twins!), and the rest of this great network staff.
As Program Assistant my main role is to help answer questions and connect people to the programs that Sojourn Network provides. I also help plan and execute any events we host. Anther part of my role is to help assist the Associate Director in his daily tasks. I am married to my amazing husband Cory and we have a daughter named Lilah.
I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. Go Cubs! I am happily married to my wonderful wife Jenae, and together we moved to Louisville in the spring of 2013. I serve Sojourn Network by engaging church planters and existing churches as they explore being a part of the network. I have a passion for the care and encouragement of church planters and churches as they participate in the mission that God has set before them.
