Serenity and her husband, Jeff, have been a part of the GracePoint family in Brookings since 2011. Together, the two made life-changing growth group connections here; soon after, God called unexpectedly into ministry! In 2015, Serenity graduated cum laude with a B.S. in biblical studies from IWU. She completed ordination requirements through OKWU CROSS Training, and she's now pursuing an M.A. in counseling through Sioux Falls Seminary. As a member of the Community Life team at GracePoint, Serenity serves in hospitality & local outreach ministries and leads Celebrate Recovery Brookings. Knowing personally how much Jesus can transform a life, Serenity is passionate about addiction recovery, jail ministry, and mentoring through the local church.
