Jeannine Grimm is the Student Services Coordinator for Winebrenner Theological Seminary. In that role, she plans for worship and fellowship experiences and provides for academic assistance and advocacy with individual students. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Bowling Green State University with a B.S. in Education/Library and Educational Media and of Winebrenner with a M.A. (Theological Studies) where she is currently doing additional graduate work.
In 2001, Jeannine was authorized within the Northwestern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in for Ministry of the Word and has joyfully served the Church as a worship leader and supply preacher since that time. In 1999, stepping beyond numerous programming involvements at St. Paul Lutheran Church , Haskins, Ohio , she was appointed to the synodical council and then elected to a term as chair (2001); she continues as a member of the Restructuring for Mission Task Force and has since been elected to a churchwide committee (2005) position. These roles have contributed to an expanded view of the Church in the world and have strengthened Jeannine and her husband, Rick, as active lay members of their local congregation.
Jeannine is passionate about learning and especially enjoys reading and researching. It has been her privilege to be an instructor in the Greek Exegesis class, a manuscript reader for several professors, and involved with a variety of writing projects at the seminary. With a deep love of the Word as her foundation, she also enjoys writing poems that use unique Biblical phrases and creating liturgical art that expresses theology in picture.
