Jessica Kuncaitis

Pastor of Outreach

Jessica grew up in Byron Center, Michigan, and has lived there her whole life.  She has been married to her husband, Nick, since 2011 and has been blessed with three awesome little girls. Jessica has always had a heart for Ministry and connecting with those she comes into contact with. She and her husband started a non-profit in West Michigan geared toward the post-high age, and she fully believes that God used those 10 years of running the non-profit to mold and equip her for her position at inSpirit and her future in ministry. Jessica graduated with her Masters in Ministry from Kuyper College in May of 2022 and was ordained as a Commissioned Pastor at inSpirit Church in October 2022. In her spare time Jessica loves being outdoors, camping, and spending time with family and friends.
