Jennifer grew up in a small “touristy” town in the northeast Georgia mountains where everyone knew each other. She attended school at her church. Her mom was a single mom so Jennifer, being the oldest of four, played a big part in helping take care of her younger siblings. After graduating from high school, her family moved to Greenville, SC where she attended Bob Jones University. She met her husband a few years later and they were married in June 2000.

After their first two children were born, Jennifer and Dave moved to the Mount Dora area in 2004. They have loved raising their children here and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. They found out about theCross when she was looking for an Easter Egg Hunt. She found a post about the Egg Drop so they went. From the moment they arrived, they were blown away by the way the event was run, how welcoming the people working were, and the energy surrounding the whole morning. They decided to visit the church a week later and now almost 2 1/2 years after that day, the Ainsworth’s love that they are able to call theCross their church home.
