My name is Jackson Scofield. I am from Downers Grove, Illinois and am a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Villa Park, Illinois. I am starting pre-seminary at Concordia University Chicago in August 2016. As a youth I struggled a lot with self-confidence and experienced depression, but the Lord made the most of it and I am still here today. I serve at Trinity in youth ministry, as a lay assistant and as an usher among other roles.
