MEET Jennifer

Jennifer Garrett

DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS & COACHING

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?

Born in NY. Raised in Sanford, FL. 

WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL?

I went to the University of South FL St. Petersburg, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Mass Communications. 

WHAT'S ONE SIGNIFICANT WAY GOD HAS MOVED IN YOUR LIFE?

Oh man, this is a tough one –– but a good one. God has moved in so many ways but I think the most significant has been His relentless pursuit of me. He's rescued me in some of my most scariest and darkest moments and gives me so much joy daily. 

WHY ARE YOU WORKING WITH THE ST. PETE UNDERGROUND?

After leaving the Underground in college and coming back 7 years later, I'm finding that this is  one of the only places that cares holistically for the tired missionary, for the skeptic, for the seeker. And they live it out in action, in the city, on the streets, in the neighborhood. The St. Pete Underground is seeing actual lives of real people being changed, and I want to be a part of that. 

WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS FOR THE CITY?

My dream for the city is to see everyone in this city know what they were made for and to have an encounter with God that leaves them feeling known, restored, healed, and sent.
