Dave Owens Associate Director dowens@sojournnetwork.com

Dave Owens
Associate Director
dowens@sojournnetwork.com

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.

Casey Smith
Communications & Content Manager
csmith@sojournnetwork.com

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!).  

Whitney Bozarth Program Coordinator wbozarth@sojournnetwork.com As Program Coordinator, I help connect and communicate with others in the network about the amazing programs that Sojourn Network has to offer! Behind the scenes I do a lot of content editing and serve as our Associate Director’s assistant. I live with my husband Jacob and my two little girls, Chloe (4) and Aubrey (2) in Louisville, KY where we have been members of Sojourn Community Church for three years.

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.
