My name is Justin (he/him/his) and I am the Pastoral Care Associate here at Grace! I am so glad you found us. One of my favorite parts of this community is the radical inclusiveness I feel here, especially with people with disabilities. I hope you will join us on a Sunday morning at 9:30am. See you there.
Justin is our Pastoral Care Associate, and he is finishing out his Dual M.Div. and M.A. (Spiritual Formation & Mission) degree at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is a cradle-Presbyterian and is Certified Ready to Receive a Call through the Presbyterian Church (USA) and is under the care of the Muskingum Valley Presbytery (Ohio).
He attended Grace since 2018, when he started seminary and served as our intern for the 2019-2020 academic year. In addition, during the summer of 2020, Justin served as a chaplain intern at Penn Medicine, Princeton Health. He also was the 2021 summer intern for youth ministry for Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church (Sunnyvale, CA).
In addition to Justin's work at Grace, he is a Prevention Program Coordinator for Corner House Behavioral Health in Princeton NJ. Justin coordinates the GAIA (Growing Up Accepted in America) program which is a one-of-a-kind program where local high school students develop impactful workshops and presentations on inclusion, implicit bias, diversity, bullying, etc. which they then present to 2nd and 5th grade students in Princeton Public Schools. Justin leads a group of GAIA students (11th grade students) who work together to promote peace, stop hate, and combat bullying.
In his free time, Justin enjoys traveling, shopping, cooking, and watching new shows/movies.
