When I was 13 years old, I wrote a paper on my greatest desire which was to be a Youth Pastor. After 18 years as a commodities options trader and many other life experiences, I figure God thinks I'm ready. Building His kingdom is so much more fulfilling than building my own. I have a wonderful wife Kristen and five great kids: Kate, Hannah, Joseph, Rachel, and Ryann. I enjoy hanging out with high school kids--my mom always told me I'm just a big kid! In the summer, the lake is my favorite place to be with my family and friends. For fun I enjoy waterskiing, hockey, competing in triathlons and watching football.
Bozarth, Director of Middle School Ministries
Jonathan is a graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University, where he received a degree in music. While studying music, he spent four years doing music ministry and school recruitment, which turned out to be youth camp ministry in disguise. Jonathan grew up at Naperville Presbyterian Church and considers it a true joy to be serving students that he's known most of his life. (God does work in mysterious ways.) Jonathan enjoys pizza, basketball, singing, and vacuuming, all of which come in handy with middle schoolers.
Tracey serves both Jonathan and Don as the administrative assistant to Student Ministries. After many years at home raising kids, she joined the workforce as a instructor at College of DuPage, where she currently teaches reading in the GED program. Shortly after starting at COD, she also began to work here at NPC. Her children, Ryan 23, Sami 18, and Amanda 13, have been attending NPC with her for 16 years. "It was always my desire, that when I someday went back to the workforce, to have a job that makes a positve impact on people's lives." In her free time, Tracey enjoys sewing, quilting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, football, the beach and reading. Tracey has a degree in communications from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois.
