Meet Our Team

Jess Holiday, Youth Ministry Coordinator

 Jess officially joined Get Real as the Youth Ministry Coordinator in June 2020 and was the heart behind reinstating our summer camp, “Save the Drama for the Stage 2020”. Jess comes to us with a Bachelor’s degree in Bible/Biblical Studies and Adolescent-Young Adult Teacher Education from Cincinnati Christian University; has training in suicide prevention and crisis response; and has spent the last 13 years in ministry and leadership roles pouring into the lives of children. Jess has a heart for mentoring and asset building and is a firm believer that we need to be the person for our girls that we needed at their age. She is excited for the opportunity to help the girls grow in their relationship with Christ and each other, to build up strong Christian leaders for our community, and to encourage a servant’s heart in all things. Jess is always available for questions or feedback at Please join us in welcoming Jess to the team!
