Newly Elected: Council and Nominating Committee Members

Carol Davis

Council

Term: 3-Year

Years Attending UALC: 35

Spouse: Bryan • Children: Rawley, Jack, Anna; two grandchildren

Campus: Lytham Road

My Prayer for UALC: that we continue to put Jesus and His Word at the center of all aspects of decision making, and that our renovation project goes smoothly and on track.

I’d like you to know this about me: I have had an eclectic church background, as well as career path that I hope gives me unique perspectives. Our children live in three different time zones, so I love to travel out of necessity.

Nancy Jeggle

Nominating Committee

Term: 2-Year

Years Attending UALC: 28

Spouse: Scott • Children: Karla (age 27), Laura (age 24)

Campus: Lytham Road

My Prayer for UALC: That we keep the Bible and the work of Jesus as our foundation. I pray that every member experiences the joy (and responsibility) of having kingdom influence. May we continually seek opportunities to deepen our own faith and to boldly share the good news of Jesus with others. Draw the community into our church. Connect and witness again and again.

I’d like you to know this about me: I’m social. It is a gift from God that has repeatedly given me opportunities to see others as precious. I desire to listen, pray, and serve.

Steven (Steve) Espe

Council

Term: 3-Year

Years Attending UALC: 5

Spouse: Karen • Children: Lauren and Kristen; three young grandchildren

Campus: Mill Run

My Prayer for UALC: I am constantly thankful that God looks at me as a work-in-progress; and I pray that UALC continues to grow as a real family and in the gifts that He brings.

I’d like you to know this about me: I'm a life-long Lutheran growing up in suburban Minneapolis. I have lived in the Hilliard area for the last 35 years. I'm recently retired after a 40+ year career with Columbia Gas/NiSource.

Kent Usher

Council

Term: 3-Year

Years Attending UALC: 24+

Children: Mark, Matthew

Campus: Mill Run

My Prayer for UALC: That we would worship God. Be and make disciples of Christ. Be Christ's body, one with each other and God. Learn and teach biblical doctrine. Fellowship, observe the Lord's supper, and pray.

I’d like you to know this about me: I try to be very approachable and un-offendable. You are important to God and me. I pray for you when I think of you.

Jill Wisecup

Nominating Committee

Term: 2-Year

Years Attending UALC: 50+

Spouse: Drew • Child: Tanner

Campus: Lytham Road

My Prayer for UALC: The church has been so instrumental in my life, and I pray that both campuses will continue to grow and thrive in unity. I pray we can be the "oasis" for people searching for answers, comfort, a rest.

I’d like you to know this about me: I am thankful for my husband and I reaching our 25th wedding anniversary. We love all things outdoors, fishing, canoeing, and camping. My son, Tanner, is a senior at Tree of Life Christian School and will graduate in May. He plans to attend Columbus State in the Fall, and eventually Ohio State.

Jane D. Leach

Council Vice-Chair

Term: 3-Year

Years Attending UALC: 30

Spouse: Don • Children: Gwen (Matthew), Anna (Paul), and two grandchildren

Campus: Lytham Road

My Prayer for UALC: Is guided by the scripture found in Philippians 2:3 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”

I’d like you to know this about me: I have listened to sermons throughout my life, and as a teen I heard four words that have guided my daily walk: Holy, Happy, Hopeful, Helpful. May these continue to give my life witness as I serve UALC.
