After a long search, we are excited to welcome Jenny Simmons to Woodmont as our new Youth Ministry Coordinator. The daughter of a pair of ministers, Jenny is a Texas transplant who has been living in Nashville for almost eight years and is presently pursuing her Master of Divinity from Central Baptist Seminary. She joined Woodmont back in the fall and has led worship at The Bridge a few times this winter. She is the author of two books—Made Well and The Road to Becoming—and is releasing a children’s book in the fall.
Jenny was in the contemporary Christian band Addison Road for about ten years and ministered to teenagers throughout the country while touring. Jenny loves playing with her daughters Annie and Lucy, Mexican food, being outside, hiking Radnor, going to concerts, being with her friends, and finding any opportunity she can to get to the ocean.
Creative and compassionate, one of the first things you’ll notice about Jenny is the heart that she has for anyone whom she encounters. Of joining our student ministry, Jenny said, “I believe the spiritual development that happens during junior high and high school can shape the rest of your life and I’m thrilled to be working with the Woodmont Youth to help them feel known, heard and loved by God, one another, and by their church family.”
We are overjoyed to have Jenny join our youth ministry family. We know that you will extend some warm Woodmont hospitality to her as she begins this vital work with our youth and their families.
