Jen Schaber is the Young Family Ministry Coordinator at Bridgewater United Methodist Church in New Jersey. Jen curates the Parenting Support section of Compassionate Christianity.

Jen helps to nurture the spiritual lives of children and parents in her role with young families and is a parent of young children herself. She’s a progressive theology nerd and loves seeking out places where progressive Christianity and parenting wisdom unite. While Jen’s been involved in the church her whole life, these roles come as a second career after her first season of professional life in marketing and project management.  She seriously got to design and bring to market candy bars!

Jen and her husband Nicholas have two boys 3 and 6.  They love all things active and outdoors with their two young boys.
