Jahan Fulkerson is recognized by everyone at Real Life Church for her contribution to the praise team every Sunday morning, but there is even more she has invested into her church family. Kindness, commitment, faithfulness, and dedication are among the many notable characteristics that are evident in her servitude. The sweet and gentle disposition that encompasses her is what attracted the Volunteer Spotlight for this week.
Jahna moved from Owensboro to pursue an education in Design, Merchandising, and Textiles, but she obtained more than a degree. She also met her husband Drew by the time she graduated, and they now have a five-year-old son named Lucas. When she isn’t spending time with her precious family, she is either working hard at Fruit of the Loom or donating her time at Real Life Church.
Being so invested in RLC came naturally to the Fulkersons, as their first visit was more than enjoyable. “We started going to RLC exactly 2 years ago on Easter. We immediately felt welcomed, and made close friends through involvement in LifeGroups and serving opportunities at church.” That welcoming atmosphere was something they wanted to be a part of, so they made RLC their home. Then, they began to consider the volunteer options that were available. Jahna now sings with the worship team every Sunday, and co-leads the Love and Respect LifeGroup for married couples.
Jahna is so grateful to not only grow in her interests, but to also do it alongside other volunteers who are just as focused on the Lord. “Singing has always been a passion that I never had the chance to pursue. Its been amazing to be a part of such a wonderful, God centered team.”
She also considers her involvement with Love and Respect very rewarding: “Seeing couples growing closer to God and closer to each other is amazing. We’ve made strong lasting relationships through LifeGroups.”
Let’s let Jahna know that her gifts and talents have not gone unnoticed, and give her a bit of encouragement this week.
Thanks for all you do, Jahna!
