JASON & NICOLE QUIRING

Jason grew up as a farm kid in Nebraska while Nicole grew up a church-planter’s kid in Houston. Their worlds collided in college and they’ve been married for over 20 years now. Following college they spent seven years in student and family ministry in Oklahoma. As God began to stir new passions in their life they moved to Utah where they were in student ministry for two and a half more years. God continued to disrupt their plans and thinking about the Church and they began to dream about what it could look like to live out the Good News in Northern Utah County in new ways. While there, they also fell in love with the people, the culture and the amazing landscape that Utah has to offer. The Quiring's moved back to Nebraska while Jason worked on his masters degree and served/taught in the local church; all the while playing “farmhand” on the family farm. They both spent those four years discerning the future and investing in lives in that context. Whether living in Oklahoma, Utah or Nebraska it’s always been a desire and passion of theirs to get to know people, know their stories and to wrestle with tangible ways to love God, love people and serve the world. They love having their doors open to people and strive to just be real with whatever life brings. Jason is a stranger to no one and enjoys hiking, being in the mountains, coaching football and basketball and talking over a great cup of coffee. Nicole is a 4th grade teacher and loves a good book, a day by the pool, chips and salsa and laughing daily. Their families interests range from sports to mountain biking to snowboarding/skiing. Their house is full of middle and high schoolers on just about any given day. 
Jason and Nicole moved back to Utah with their four kids during the summer of 2013 and planted the Greenhouse Community Church.
