Board of Elders

Jennifer Heberle Barnes:

Hi, I have been a life long member of St. John’s from when my mother Jean Heberle decided I should be baptized at our home by Pastor Kuehnert, and later was confirmed and married by Pastor Carl.

During my years at St. Johns I have served in many roles from Sunday school teacher, choir member, servant leader to being on a variety of boards. These include Worship Music and the Arts, Stewardship and the Board of Trustee as Secretary, Vice President and President.

I believe that St. John’s is a special place, a place of family and a place of worship and look forward to serving on the Board of Elders to help guide the church to its future in God’s Kingdom. I am a chiropractor which I have been for 25 years now!

I spend my time with my husband Howie and our twins Katie and Howie who are graduating from high school this year. I love to travel but also love to curl up with a good book or go see a good movie.

I believe that God has a plan for us and we need to check with Him daily to make sure our plans are His plans or He will just laugh when we try and do our own thing! ( sk me about my experience with that ).

I was raised in Pittsford and attended St Paul’s Lutheran Church. I joined St. John’s in 2006(approx.).I have been on the counting team from joining until present. I have served on the Board for Mission & ministry and am currently on the Board of Elders for the second time. My husband Roger joined St. John’s in 2008. We have 5 children, 10 grandchildren, and 1 great grand child. We are truly blessed. We live in Pittsford & love our St. John’s family.

Sharon Jenkins:

Hello, my name is Sharon Jenkins. I have been a member of St. John’s since 1977. I transferred in from Immanuel Lutheran Church in Okawville, Florida. I moved to Upstate NY with my husband. He was a teacher at Pal-Mac High Sc hool. I have worked at NWCH and RGH and retired in November. My family are also members of this church; husband Ray, and daughters Amber & Krystle. I have 3 grandchildren who are baptized members of our church; Mercedes, Madison and Olivia.

I enjoy being an elder and serving in that capacity for the people of St. John’s. Since retiring I have been interested in serving my church in a more active role.
