Work: (307) 734-0388 ext. 107
I was born in Chicago and was raised in Scottsdale, AZ and Anaheim, CA where I was blessed to have my son, Max, who is now forty-four. Iíve had a number of careers including medical assistant, flight attendant
and paralegal; however, my artistic family persuaded me to pursue the world of fine art, which ultimately led me to beautiful Jackson Hole sixteen years ago. Since I moved here from Arizona, Iíve been employed by several art galleries, the most recent of which is Astoria Gallery, where I currently work on a part-time basis. I was also privileged to work for Dr. Brent Blue for two years, before transitioning to PCJH in April as your new Coordinator of Congregational Life. I am an active member in CERT (Citizens Emergency Response Team), the American Red Cross and the Howdy Pardners Ambassador Club in conjunction with the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. It is a blessing and honor to have been chosen for this position. Yes, I am a bit overwhelmed, but I look forward to working with our wonderful Congregation coordinating volunteers and facilitating many of our various events, along with the assistance of a very supportive staff. What could be more delightful than to work in a position I love and serve our Heavenly Father at the same time! We currently have many devoted volunteers within our Congregation, but we are always seeking others to serve in many capacities; without you, our many church functions would be hindered. If you are seeking a meaningful way to serve our Lord, please feel free to contact me at any time. God bless all of you. I sincerely look forward to serving you. Thank you for your continuing support and encouragement.

What else could more perfectly fill both of his post-college dreams than a church internship in Jackson Hole?! Preston moved to Jackson in August of 2011 and began as an intern at PCJH. He moved to his current role in the summer of 2012. Preston finds his identity somewhere between his Southern roots and his love for the mountains and the Jackson lifestyle. He has a passion for the great outdoors, traveling the world, watching football, the amazing people in his life, and his journey in life following Jesus. He loves sharing this journey with others believes it to be the greatest honor to get to talk about Jesus for his "job".

Hi, my name is Sarah Gensch. I am the wife of Brett Gensch and mother to our 4 year old little boy Wolfi, a true gift from God! I was born and raised as a Roman Catholic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, yes; I'm a
good Mid-Western Girl. My love of the outdoors and camping started when I was a young girl. I was in the camper program every summer at a Christian Y.M.C.A Camp in Wisconsin. In High School I was an LIT at the camp and then was a Counselor during the summers that I attended the University of Minnesota. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and working with children. I followed my heart after college and moved to the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I found home in Snowmass/Aspen where I worked for the daycare in the winters and summer camp in the summer. I helped implement the pre-teen summer camp program. I also met my husband Brett in Snowmass. We moved to Victor Idaho and I worked at Grand Targhee in a few different positions. Then, I was offered a position as the Real-Estate Contracts and Operations Manager in Big Sky Montana for a real estate developer. After seven very busy years in the real estate development field, Brett and I decided to move back to the Jackson Hole area to raise our son Wolfi! After taking a look at our life and what was important to us, I realized that my heart and love is to work with Children!
