Meet Our Elders

Jim Jensen

My wife, Karlene, and I are natives of the twin cities area (Orfordville & Footville), and were married at the Footville Church of Christ 33 years ago. I was baptized the following year, became a member, and have enjoyed serving the church in various ways ever since. My paid profession was in emergency services and I am a retired fire chief. We have two grown children and were recently blessed with two amazing (and active) grandchildren. Our church family has been such an important part of our lives over the years. It’s a joy to serve and give back just a small portion of what we’ve been blessed with through our involvement here at Footville Church of Christ.

I have had the privilege of growing up in the Footville Church of Christ. I was baptized and became a member about age 11. My wife, Teresa, became a member soon after we married in 1981. We have 2 adult children, Josh and Amber Earleywine and Ian and Sarah Murphy. We are blessed that both of our children and their spouses love the Lord. Although I have seen many changes in our physical facilities, people joining our congregation, and people moving away, Ministers joining our congregation and then moving on, one thing remains constant. Jesus loves each and every one of us and wants all to follow Him and spend eternity with Him. Since you are reading this, we as a congregation pray you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and we look forward to spending eternity together.

I have been so fortunate to have grown up in a Christian family and am a third generation member of the Footville Church of Christ.  My wife, Linda and my two sons, Cory and Jeffery are also members and we have had four German foreign exchange students, Leon, Luis, Lorenz and Lennart who have joined us at church during the past few years.  I work in law enforcement and Linda is an elementary school teacher.  At church, I have served in a variety of capacities and lately have been teaching junior/senior high or college level Sunday School.  One of my favorite church activities is Men’s Night Out, where we visit a variety of local restaurants to hold our monthly meetings to work on solving the world’s problems😁.  The Footville Church of Christ has felt like an extension of our family and has been a great place to attend for many, many years!
