Urban Plunge Scholarship

We are excited to announce the opening of the Virginia Penker scholarship fund!

This fund will be used to help disadvantaged children participate in Urban Plunge trips around the nation. It will be given to families who can not otherwise afford for them to go.

The Urban Plunge is an incredible opportunity to serve God, bless ministries, and help youth discover their giftings, and dream about where God may be calling and using them in the future, and in their hometowns.

Scholarship donations can be any amount, but $65 will sponsor a child for one day, $130 will cover the cost of a weekend Plunge, and $250 will cover the cost of a week.

Virginia Penker was a beautiful example of love, mercy, and grace to everyone around her. Her home was a place of safety, where a hot meal was only one of many resources that she used to bless others. Virginia passed away at the age of 88 in December of 2014. The hope is that through this scholarship, her legacy of stewardship and hospitality would be passed on.

Jennifer Fitzgerald

After having an amazing experience on a Des Moines plunge, I was inspired to inquire how my own city could get involved. Turns out I was the one God had in mind to get it in motion. Over the last year, I’ve spent a great deal of time seeking out, connecting, and plugging into our ministry partners to gain a better understanding of who they serve and how our teams can best suit them. My experience has been nothing short of amazing seeing how God connects all the pieces together. My mission for Chicago to bring awareness to our ministry partners and to help teams truly experience what it feels like to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I’ve been married for 18 years to my husband Mike. We have two children, Josh and Gracie, and two dogs. My work experience includes teaching at the middle school level, full time mom and sales position in a start-up company. I also hold a Masters degree in Education. As for free time, I am a huge people person so most of the time you will find me with family or friends. I also enjoy working out, reading, and spending time in the Word.
