Gribble who is retired and they have one daughter, Tisha, who works at Camp Aldersgate as a special events coordinator.

JSJay Sweningson, Minister to Families with Youth

Jay was originally born in St. Paul, MN. He was born into an extremely poor, rough and abusive home life and then eventually, at the age of 5 1/2, was given up for adoption and spent over a year in the state's foster system. Shortly before his 7th birthday, he was offered a chance to come visit his half brother, whom he'd never met, in Houston, Texas. That "visit" turned out to be permanent as he was later adopted by the same amazing and loving parents who had adopted his brother. Jay grew up in Houston and still considers it to be his hometown. He moved to Hot Springs, AR in 1992 to attend Bible College at Applied Life Christian College where he received a Bachelors Degree in Education and later became ordained in 2001. Jay was the youth minister here at Trinity from 2000-2003. He then moved to the New Orleans, LA area and had been there until his return to Little Rock and his re-hire here at Trinity in 2009. Jay has a daughter, Rachel, and his son, Tyler, both of whom are what brings him his greatest joy. He also enjoys sports of all kinds, movies, music and just "walking life' with his friends and family.
