Her experience in management development and training combined with her over 30 years of marriage to her husband, Dave, provide a unique blend for Greater Impact.

Kate Bittner, Creative Super Hero
Why do you do what you do? There is a mission to encourage one another to find purpose in the work we do. Purpose that directly affects our lives and the lives of the ones we love. I became a designer when I realized my ability could help others fulfill their passion. My WHY? A God-given pursuit to find people who believe what I believe and work with them to create a vision. I use words and pictures and graphics that speak to their WHY so they can find others who believe what they believe. Let’s create something together.
Jennifer McKinney, Social Media Ninja
Jennifer serves alongside her husband, Jason, in planting a new church in downtown Cincinnati. As a minister’s wife since 2002, she has had first-hand experience with the joys and frustrations that go along with that role. During a particular rough patch in her marriage, God led her to the book The Respect Dare. Not only did that course strengthen her relationship with God and her husband, it also led her to be called to serve with Greater Impact. Jen is our social media ninja, managing the social media sites for the ministry. She homeschools her two children, allowing the whole family to be involved in ministry together. Formerly a middle-school science teacher, she now teaches biology at a local homeschool Co-op. Jen’s greatest passions are Christ, her family, missions, the great outdoors, coffee, and books.

Eileen Herzog, Administrative Wizard
Eileen is a retired CPA, who specializes in managing and teaching Fortune 500 companies the best practices use of proprietary corporate tax software. Give her any task and she will end up building a spreadsheet for it. Ask her to analyze any part of a project and she will download the data, restructure it, create the spreadsheet and answer your request. Sound boring? Eileen’s gift to Greater Impact Ministries is to be available and figure out how best to organize the data so the creative minds of the rest of the team can focus on their part. Eileen has been married to Jim for 48 years, has 2 children and twin granddaughters. She is an avid crafter in her spare time.
