Jamie Richards is a central Iowa native and earned a degree in Christian Education and Ministry with an emphasis in Youth Ministry and Adolescent Studies from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, before moving to the greater Seattle area to serve as a youth minister for a Lutheran congregation. After more than half a decade in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, she moved back to Iowa and stepped into the role of Young Adult Minister for REVIVE at Hope in January 2016.
Her initial step into ministry was through Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp in Story City, Iowa. She was on summer staff during college summer breaks, serving as a camp counselor, Discipleship Team member and as an Assistant Program Coordinator. She also served in various roles on the Campus Ministry Team in college.
Outside of work, you’ll find Jamie at the movies, drinking chai with friends, being active outside or on social media … because let’s be honest ... Instagram rules.
Her favorite part of being involved in ministry at Hope is meeting people and watching them discover what God is up to in their lives!
