Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church

“We live in a society increasingly shaped by the voices that seem to yell the loudest and longest. The fruits of such a society appear to be fear, division, and mistrust. I am excited to be involved in a growing community at the Geller Center that believes other, better fruits are possible; fruits like understanding, compassion, and a greater good for all people. The work of inviting young people to enter openly, respectfully, and courageously, into challenging conversations carries the potential of shaping a society capable of bearing those other, better fruits.”

Jenny Illig
Officer Position: Treasurer
Assistant Minister, New Thought Northern Colorado Center for Spiritual Living

“I believe in and support the mission of the Geller Center – teaching young adults to engage in difficult conversation with openness, respect and courage. This is a vital way to promote healthy, thriving community – the peace of common unity – in Northern Colorado and beyond.”

“The Geller Center is a space for deep reflection, contemplation, and growth, not to mention delicious and nourishing food! Being on the board provides a path in which I can use my unique perspective as someone who is served to serve this beautiful and enriching space.”
