Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I'm Jenna Barbosa and I love long walks on the beach. Ha! But, I’m serious – the beach is my happy place. I love how all five senses collide at once. I love the sight of the vast ocean’s glistening water that looks like a massive amount of diamonds floating on its surface. Let’s talk about the feeling of the hot sand between your toes mixed with the sound of seagulls and the taste of saltwater that lingers in your mouth. To top it off, the smell of the ocean getting stronger as you cross its threshold where the water kisses the sand. I love things that remind me just how big God is and how He loves us more than we can imagine.
I am thriving as a thirty-something single woman pursuing all God has for me. I work as a Certified Biblical Counselor and Life Coach at True Vine Christian Services where I also serve as the Director of Operations. My work is so rewarding as I get the privilege to walk alongside my clients as they fight to overcome struggles and reach a place of healing and strength they never knew they had. I also lead a singles’ ministry at NorthRoad Community Church and I’m doing what I can with God’s help to inspire singles to embrace their singleness rather than resist it. We can live a godly, confident, and fun single life while still desiring marriage. I love teaching women truth through God’s word whether it’s from the stage, one-on-one with my clients, or in small group settings. I have been so blessed to see how God’s truth impacts people’s hearts and changes their lives.
I have worked hard learning how to best serve those I counsel, coach, speak to, and consult for business. I earned a Master of Arts in Non Profit Administration from Lindenwood University and a Bachelors Degree in Human Services from Missouri Baptist University. Additionally, I earned an Advanced Diploma in Biblical Counseling as well as an Advanced Certificate in Christian Life Coaching from the American Association of Christian Counselor's (AACC) online program, Light University.
