Administrative Assistant

Janet Fant
From a very early age, I had felt the pull in my heart to serve God and do His will.  I accepted Christ at the age of 14 and felt the call of God to go to the mission field.  I needed to prepare my life for service and was led to The Kentucky Mountain Bible College in Vancleve, KY.  There I studied the Bible and Missions. Through the years my desire for missions never left my heart, but God chose for me to work in the local church and serve Him by singing, teaching, directing, and leading.  I raised my family in Northern Kentucky area and my two children, Ben and Julie graduated from Campbell County High School.  Later in life, I went to the University of Southern Mississippi and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development and Family Relations. 
 
Most of my life, I have been an Administrative Assistant.  It is my vocation of choice.  I have worked for hospitals, foundations, counseling offices and now the Kentucky Annual Conference. I joined the staff at the Northern Kentucky District in November of 2015.  I love serving God in this office and using my talents for Him. Every day I feel fulfilled and at peace in the center of His will for me.  I am also privileged to be a pastor's wife.  My husband Jim is the pastor at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Maysville, KY.  We serve and love the Lord together.
 
I love to read, play the piano and do jigsaw puzzles.  I enjoy teaching in Women's ministries.  I am working on a book of poems and stories and hope to get it published some day.

This Louisville native has quickly learned to love Northern Kentucky. I was the associate pastor for youth at Fort Thomas Highland for two years before transitioning into the dual role of district youth coordinator and director for the Wesley Foundation at NKU. (Go Norse!) 
 
At NKU, I am here for the campus community. As the district youth coordinator, I am here for all of you. I love youth and young adults, and we have a great passion for these ministries in Northern Kentucky. I look forward to continuing to meet all of you and come alongside your church communities. We are a connectional church; we will always be stronger when we work together. 
 
Other fun facts? Patrick and I have been in this district for just over 3 years. We are proud parents to Aago the parrot and Oswald the bunny. We have attended a baseball game at 20 of the 30 MLB stadiums, and plan to get to the last ten over the next year. My life-long ambition is to write a theologically sound Bible study series for nerds. The volumes on Harry Potter and Star Trek: TNG are in the rough draft stages. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is my favorite book in the Narnia series.
