COLUMBUS YOUNG LIFE
My name is Andrew Jenkins and I currently serve as the Area Director for Young Life in the Columbus City Schools in Columbus, OH. I grew up as a member of Greater Liberty Baptist Church where my faith and foundation in Christ were first formed. After graduating from Finneytown High School in Cincinnati, OH, I attended The Ohio State University. During my time at Ohio State, I began to volunteer with Young Life as a member of the team responsible for re-introducing Young Life to the Columbus City Schools. After graduating from Ohio State with a degree in Middle Childhood Education, I moved into my current position overseeing the work of Young Life in the Columbus City Schools.
I married my wonderful wife Naomi in 2016. We enjoy playing sports, board / card games, and spending time with high school students and volunteer leaders.

In 1997, he and his wife France-Lise from the French Island of Guadeloupe contributed to the founding of Mission Inter Senegal, a holistic church planting agency which they served for 15 years. With over 3 decades of experience in ministry they are now focused on developing and encouraging leaders as well as counseling and matrimonial coaching throughout West Africa.

Their prayer is to be a blessing for the leaders they trained and mentor.
