Jan first learned about Joy El and Released Time while she was a youth pastor at a church in Chambersburg. She began volunteering with a Chi Alpha class when her church started hosting them. When that group stopped meeting, she was invited to become a school coordinator for the Andrew Buchanan Released Time.
Jan loves Released Time because of the opportunities to share Christ and scripture with the children who might not otherwise hear God’s good news. She is married to Manny and they live in Chambersburg with a big, friendly cat named Auggie. In her spare time, she enjoys playing guitar and piano and singing and hiking.
A meaningful scripture for Jan is Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight.”
