Biography

Jasmine is the daughter of radio missionaries and spent 12 years stationed in Monaco. After returning to North America she received a B.A. in Religious Education with a major in Counselling. This was followed by an M.Div at Wycliffe College in Toronto where she met Terence. Jasmine moved to New Brunswick after marrying Terence in 2006. In New Brunswick they served in various parish settings for the first 8 years of ministry. They both had a vision for more community-based ministry and in 2014 Terence and Jasmine launched a community outreach organization now called “Pennies and Sparrows”. Pennies and Sparrows focuses on repairing the social fabric in the city of Saint John. Through relationship-based programs and projects, this ministry engages with some of the most marginalized people in the community. In 2020 Terence and Jasmine became co-priests in charge of Stone Church. Terence and Jasmine have two kids and find that sharing jobs and sharing child care, while at times complicated, has been one of the greatest joys in life (and can only be accomplished by the grace of God).
