Hi my name is Jennifer Punchard and I’m the Director of Family Ministries and the Agape House. In 2007 I joined the team and fell in love with helping others in His name! In addition to serving the Lord, I’m a wife and mom to 5 amazing humans! As a family we enjoy attending church, exploring nature, hiking, swimming, watching movies and spending time with extended family ❤ ️ I have loved the Lord since I was a child and although I strayed away many times, His unconventional grace and loving arms have always welcomed me home. Now I have a passion to love others in that same way. To God be all the glory.
I began working at ARM in 2004, and currently serve as the Promotion and Development Director. My job is full of variety, and I truly enjoy coming to work each day. I am grateful for my coworkers and the volunteers who make every day interesting. When we can celebrate successes with clients, it really makes it all so worth it. I live in Gettysburg with my three kids, Tyger, Indigo, and Judah, and enjoy spending time with my family, camping, and the beach!

I started working for the Mission in 2020 as the Bookkeeper/Administrative Assistant. Through my own life experience, God has given me a heart to help those in need. I know the Lord is so faithful and to be a part of a His plan in the lives of those we serve, as He continues to write their story is a blessing indeed.
I am also married and have two grown daughters and four fabulous grandchildren. I love spending time with my family and making memories with them and going on adventures.
After my husband and I left our jobs at the Smoky Mountain Childrens Home in Sevierville Tn. We re-located to Gettysburg to be close to our children in 2007. Soon after I was offered a position at the mission as Food Service Manager. I enjoyed cooking for the men and staff and getting to know everyone.
In 2015 there was an opening at Agape House for a Life Skills Coach so my husband and moved in Sept. 2015. At that time I started working in the office doing the voucher program for our clients on Mon. Wed. and Fri.
I enjoy working both places and having the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with each person that comes in.
My husband and I were blessed with three children. We lost our second child, a daughter, when she was a year old. Both our son and daughter are married and blessed us with two grand children each. Needless to say they are the loves of my life. At the end of 2018 my husband went on to be with the Lord after a long illness.
My joy comes from serving others and my cup overflows.
