Jeannine Grimm is the Student Services Coordinator for Winebrenner Theological Seminary. In that role, she provides for academic assistance and advocacy with individual students and teaches Foundations in Theological Study (IS 510), the course for incoming students. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Bowling Green State University (B.S. 1976) and of Winebrenner (M.A.[T.S.] 2005), 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 became involved with the wider Church, serving on the judicatory council (1999-2005) and a churchwide/national committee (2005-2011). 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.
