Jess Hinton is the new Director for CCF, but she isn't new to CCF! Jess has been helping out part time with our UNI campus since 2013. She is so excited to be taking on this new role and cannot wait to see what God does through CCF in the upcoming years. Jess loves to be outside hiking and biking. She loves to play with her niece and nephews.

Jess has a huge desire to see students grow in their relationship with Jesus and to become servant leaders in their local churches.
