jen popenhagen

Words used to describe Jenny Popenhagen are transparent, real, and easy to be around. Jenny has devoted her life to following Jesus, being a wife and mom to three sons, while helping her husband Mike Popenhagen lead Radiant Church of Jackson. She has served in ministry for over twenty-two years in many capacities from event planning, leading community groups, to administrative support.

In 2010 Jenny discovered a more profound love from God that caused a new level of freedom to bloom in her. She is devoted to helping others find this same freedom and intimacy. Jenny and her husband planted Radiant Church in Jackson, Michigan in 2014 where they are seeing lives transformed, marriages strengthened, with the lost and hurting turning to Christ. Because they are meeting spiritual needs in their community, God has opened doors of opportunities for Jenny to minister to other women.

When she’s not serving others, Jenny spends her days hanging out with family, riding motorcycles with her husband, camping and simply relaxing on the patio drinking coffee. She is looking forward to this new season of being a grandma.


Emily Klotz

Emily is passionate about helping women know who they are in Christ, know His love for them, and live the abundant, victorious life that Jesus has planned for each of them! She desires that women grow strongly rooted in the Word of God, and that they also learn to fly freely in the gifts and purpose God has for their lives.

Emily lives in Cadillac, Michigan with her husband, Dan, and two beautiful children, Analyn and Levi.  Together, they pastor Resurrection Life Church - Cadillac.
