OUR TEAM

Jessica Stafford

Children’s Ministry¬†Director

Jessica grew up in Wellington, Florida and has always had a passion for working with kids. While attending college, Jessica served as the Community of Hope Children’s Ministry intern for a summer. After graduating from the University of Florida with a B.A. and M.A. in Elementary Education (Go Gators!), Jessica married her best friend, Zak. They moved to Tallahassee where Jessica began her teaching career, and then all the way out to Colorado. After their daughter, Charlee, was born in December 2012, they moved back home to south Florida and plugged back in to Community of Hope. Jessica is so excited about the privilege of connecting kids and parents to Christ! When she’s not working, Jessica can be found at the park, having tea parties, playing dress up, coloring, and all of the other activities that come along with having a two and a half year old girl.
