I am Jessi Copeland and have attended Hillcrest for most of my life. I grew up attending the children's ministry programs and then went away for college and teach in Michigan for a couple of years. Upon returning to Sioux Falls I was elated to come back home to Hillcrest church. I am married to Shane and we have three children, Ben, Luke, and Vivian. I am a part time ELL teacher in the Harrisburg school District. I teach English to immigrant and refugee children. The other days I'm home keeping up with my three kids! I enjoy spending time with family, baking when I have time, and being outdoors in the summer!
My area of responsibility is human resources, whose goal is to help the people of the church find their place to connect and serve. We do this with a tool called strengthsfinder alongside a workshop to inform you of the possibilities and then get you connected in an area that excites you! I was fortunate enough to grow up in this church and serve and be plugged in. I am excited to help others find an area that excites them where they feel called to get involved!
