Pick holds a Masters of Divinity from Drew Theological School.
Jenn is passionate about creative worship, loving God and God's people, and following the direction of the Holy Spirit. Jenn is excited about the possibilities that God has in store for First United Methodist Church Grapevine. She says, "I look forward to walking with the people of FUMC Grapevine as we seek a Holy/Human connection through worship, mission, community, and care. The journey awaits!" Jenn and her husband Todd have one son, Drew, who is 11 months old.
Rev. John Mollet, Senior Pastor of FUMC Grapevine, comments, "Jenn's educational background, ecclesiastical talents and warm personality are a wonderful addition to our church's pastoral staff. I look forward to working with her as we continue to serve this congregation and the Lord in our ministry to the Grapevine community."
