I am Jacquie Dickensheets, a member of Peace and resident of Gahanna for more than thirty-five years. I am a retired elementary teacher and now stay busy with family, friends, travel, volunteering, working out, and appreciating life. My family consists of two married daughters, and three granddaughters, with a fourth on the way very soon. A Path to Peace excites me because I am always trying to be the best I can be. Having a holistic life with God by renewing my mind, body, and spirit can help me be true to myself and to serve God and others.
I have lived in Gahanna for over 30 years and have been a member of Peace for 5 years. I have 2 daughters, Tasha 28 & Maria 24 yrs old and 2 granddaughters 3 yrs and 11 months. I work at Nationwide in financial sales and am a certified business coach. My passion is helping others discover their full potential. I am excited to be a part of this journey of faith at Peace to provide support and opportunity for others who are looking to find inner joy and peace.
I am Michael Lester and I’m the Minister of Music and The Arts at Peace Lutheran Church. I feel that what I do at Peace is truly a calling. Part of what I have done much of my life is coach musicians. Many of the same gifts and insight I use to coach musicians are transferable skills to coaching people in any job and in every day life. I love the concepts of discipline and intentional practice. To get to a certain level on any instrument or a sport takes both discipline and practice. What is more important than our spiritual life? My passion is working with people and I really want to help others reach their full potential. John 10:10 truly resonates with me. It says: “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance.”
I’m really excited about A Path to Peace and the opportunity to be a personal guide. As Pastor Kai, says: “God’s grace is the transforming power for a new or renewed life. Our role is to simply open ourselves to God’s energizing, renewing power.” Amen!
