Mrs. Tina Gowins
I had worked in the clinical counseling field for many years. I have worked at Harding Hospital, Hannah Neil Center for Children, The Buckeye Ranch, a private Christian Counseling Agency and was in private practice for a while. My husband and I were also Treatment foster parents with the Bair Agency for several years.
I graduated from Pickerington High School (before there were two schools). I met my husband, Jerry, in Oxford Ohio while attending Miami University. Jerry is my best friend and soul mate. We have been married for 31 years. We married while still in college and then moved to the Columbus area after graduation. We have three biological kids (one from Jerry’s previous marriage). Andrew (36), who is married to Jaclynn, they live in Nebraska and have given us 4 beautiful grandchildren–Andrew Jr. (AJ) (16), Leland (14), Daivahnee (10), and Trevian (8). Next is Max (30), who lives in Columbus. Cori (24), also lives in Columbus and is a student at Columbus State, she is an alumnus of BCA. We also adopted 2 awesome girls when they were teenagers. Diamond (33), she is the mother of our fifth beautiful grandchild, Taylor (12), who is attending BCA this year. Karah (32) lives and works in Athens and will be graduating from Hocking Tech this year.
My husband and I are members at the Columbus Vineyard. I accepted Christ in college after I met my husband. His dad was a Pentecostal pastor at a small Assemblies of God church. I love missions work and have been on several international mission trips as well as many local mission trips. One of our passions is working with the homeless population of Columbus.
