Jenni Bounds

Children's Ministry Director

Jenni grew up in a small town in the mountains of northern Idaho. After graduating with a degree in voice performance from Furman University, she moved to NYC (and the UWS). She intended to stay for only 6 weeks—but that was 20 years ago! She’s worked steadily as an actress, singer and model in theatre, film and TV, and as a makeup artist in between. Jenni has been an active part of Redeemer since moving to the city, and even met her husband, Brent, in a Redeemer Community Group. When she's not chasing after their three sons, Griffin, Wyatt and Sawyer, she's an avid half-marathoner, event planner and tennis player. As our Children’s Ministry Director, Jenni helps foster an environment in which parents, families, youth and young professionals desire to share in the lives of young children and teach them about the gospel. “I love gathering people into community and connecting to others,” says Jenni. “My role on the LSQ team is to gather people into Children’s Ministry and connect them to some of the youngest members or our larger Redeemer community. How cool is that?” Jenni's favorite Upper West Side restaurant: “The Mermaid Inn—their fish tacos are the BEST!”
