Jennifer Vasquez, Executive Director
Jennifer Vasquez began her role as part-time Executive Director on January 1, 2023. She is grateful for this opportunity to lead such a diverse organization. The MFC has a solid foundation of relationships and appreciation of diversity that has been built by the hard work of Judy and Woody Trautman and so many other volunteer leaders.
Jennifer comes to us with a Bachelor’s in Special Education from BGSU, a Master of Arts in Religion (focus on Diaconal Ministry and Christian Education) from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in South Carolina, and a Doctor of Ministry degree (focus on Christian Education) from Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Thanks to her husband’s service in the Marine Corps and the Air Force, she has lived in different regions of the United States and in Okinawa, Japan, and has been involved with a variety of ecumenical and interfaith communities. She currently teaches part-time as an Intervention Specialist with Springfield Local Schools and serves on Sundays as Director of Christian Education at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Maumee, Ohio. Jennifer, her husband, and their three teenage children reside in Holland, Ohio.
