Jessica Renteria is from Sycamore, IL, where she lived with her parents and younger brother until she went to college at North Park University. During her undergrad, Jessica doubled majored in Youth Ministry and Biblical-Theological Studies. Throughout her undergrad, she served and led middle schoolers and high schoolers in three different ministries. Currently, Jessica is pursuing her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. It was during these opportunities that Jessica felt a strong calling and passion in serving and leading youth. As a result, Jessica prayed for God to open an opportunity to serve and lead youth in the Chicago, IL, area. As the Director of Youth Ministries at NewCom, Jessica desires to lead youth to grow deeper in their relationship with God and to participate in God’s work in our world. When Jessica is not working at NewCom, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watching movies, going to coffee shops, and working out.
