Catherine Jacobs

Director of Grandparenting Ministry,
KidZ at Heart International Ministry

Catherine is a mother, grandmother, speaker and author who believes scripture calls us to pass a legacy of deep faith in Jesus Christ to our children and grandchildren. She loves to share from her heart and life with her fellow “Grands” (grandparents, grand aunts/uncles, grand friends) about God’s vision for transformative grandparenting, focusing on loved one’s hearts as well as their minds. She is also compelled to encourage young parents to invite their parents to intentionally impact their grandchildren for Christ. Catherine serves the Diocese of South Carolina as a representative on the Diocesan Council and looks forward to addressing the ACNA Provincial Assembly in June, 2024, on the topic of “Grandparenting at Heart”.  Catherine is the author of Pass the Legacy: 7 Keys for Grandparents Making a Difference.
