Amanda Agresti

Amanda, her husband Matt (you might recognize him!), and their 3 boys live in Shrewsbury, and they've called Monmouth County their home for their entire lives. She's a 5th grade English & Language Arts teacher in Middletown, and is known for making a difference in kids' lives. Before serving in this role, she's been a Park Kids teacher for years, a High School Group leader, among many other things. She's got the biggest heart, she is a do-er like you wouldn't believe, and is tenacious at having you join in the fun. And the kids love her. Amanda is helping coordinate Park Kids in this interim period, until we are able to bring a full time Family Pastor on staff.

Anthony Santiago

Anthony has been apart of Park Church for about nine years. He's originally from Brooklyn, and moved to NJ in 2003. He works at a retirement community as a dietary supervisor in Red Bank. Anthony started my journey here at Park Church as a teenager, attending the High School Group. Through this ministry, his faith blossomed as the leaders showed him the love of Christ through their actions. Wanting to do that for others, he started helping out in the Middle School Group in 2010. In this ministry, he learned much from the senior leaders and the students. As he saw a need in the High School Group for help, he transitioned over. After a year, he was asked to run the ministry and jumped at the opportunity to share the love of Christ with high school students - where it all started for him!

Jenny Streich

Jenny grew up in Middletown and went to Middletown North (Go Lions!). She graduated from Stockton University with a degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology, and is hoping to get a Masters in Speech Pathology in the near future. She currently works at Academy Learning Center as an Instructional Aide.  She is a twin, and spends most of her free time with her twin (Danielle) playing Mario Party, board games, and doing puzzles. She loves karaoke but can't sing at all. She feels bad for the people who sit next to her at service because of it. Taylor Swift is her favorite singer, because she kind of looks like her. Her favorite thing about living in NJ is the beach, she can’t understand people who choose not to live next to the beach.
