Vice President of People & Culture
After more than 10 years of planning training events for Group Publishing and fundraising events for St. Jude's Children’s Research Hospital, Janna creatively blends her experience with the reality of ministry. In addition to her work with KidZ at Heart, she has trained women’s ministry leaders through Group for Women, has written several articles for Children’s Ministry Magazine, and contributed to the Simple Truth Bible and LIVE Curriculum.
Janna is passionate about getting people involved in the cause of reaching and teaching the 2.3 billion children in our world…in prayer, in serving, and in giving. She has been on staff with KidZ at Heart since 2010.
Janna lives in Colorado with her husband, Scott, and two boys, Quint (’04) and Ian (’08). They are happy to call LifeSpring Covenant Church home. She doesn’t have much pink in her house with her three boys, but she has plenty of dirt.
