Julie Jenks

Director of Weekend Experience - Lake County
Lake County

Julie is Lake County’s Director of Weekend Experience, and is definitely known as the woman who “holds the church down!” Originally from Apopka, FL, Julie started serving on the Connections Team in June 2018. “I was serving back up to Beth, and when she retired I asked about the position.”


“I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of Journey staff. To be able to greet and love on others as they walk through our doors gives me so much joy! I enjoy following up with new here guests, that personal touch means so much to people. I love the personal touch we give as a church and how we stay connected with members of our church.”


Julie is married to her husband Mike, who serves as a guitar player in the worship band. “Every day I’m in awe of my hubby! God gave me the best partner, Mike Jenks. We were married 8/6/94, and we have one son, Michael who will be 26 in September. We also gained a daughter in law, Allison in July of 2020!”


When asked what she would do if she didn’t work at Journey, Julie says “I would love to deliver meals every day to people in need!” Her favorite music is “Christian music and oldies. 50’s, 60’s…let’s face it 70’s, 80’s & 90’s are oldies to me now too!” The best advice she’s ever received comes from her family. “My Nana always told me ‘a relationship will always end the way it started, so be sure you are aware of what you’re putting into every relationship. It will always work out, most of the time it will be better & more than you can imagine.'”
