Leadership & Staff

  • Rev. mike winnowski

    senior pastor

    mike@genevacampuschurch.org


    As pastor of Geneva Campus Church, Mike is called to teach and live out God’s Word, and to help others to do the same.


    Mike started coming to Geneva as a UW student. As he remembers it, the time he spent here and the people he spent time with powerfully shaped his spiritual life and his vocational choice.  Mike eventually left Geneva to go to seminary.


    Since graduating from Calvin Theological Seminary, Mike has served as a campus minister at the University of South Dakota, been a ship-visiting chaplain in the port of Montreal, and pastored a congregation in Waterloo, Ontario.  In 2003, Mike returned to Geneva Campus Church as its pastor.

    Mike’s family is an important part of his life and ministry.  He and Beth (DeVries) met at Geneva, and got married here in 1983.  Beth teaches English as a Second Language. They have three children: Lucy, Zoe and Clio.

    Mike pursues a life-long passion for learning (he regularly takes courses at UW in a variety of disciplines).  When time permits, Mike also enjoys reading, drawing, painting, photography, biking, kayaking and canoeing.

  • Rev. jim kirk

    associate pastor

    jim@genevacampuschurch.org


    Jim is Geneva’s Associate Pastor and serves alongside Mike in preaching, family, and campus ministry.


    Jim first came to Geneva as a UW graduate student planning on an academic career. However, participation at Geneva led Jim to ask new questions about his life goals and vocation. After discerning a call to pastoral ministry, he left Madison in 2009 to serve two churches in New York before returning to Geneva in September 2017.


    Jim was born in La Jolla, California and spent his high school and college years in Asheville, North Carolina.  He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina-Asheville (B.A., Philosophy), Westminster Theological Seminary (M.Div., Theology & Pastoral Care), and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (M.A., Hebrew & Semitic Studies).


    He is married to Linda and they have three children: Jonathan, Hannah, and Lucas. When he is not at a concert or in a cafe, he can be found in the woods hiking with his family.

  • micah behr

    Worship Director & artist-in-residence

    micah@genevacampuschurch.org


    Micah has been attending Geneva since he visited in 2010 during his first week of graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The carefully planned, Christ-centered liturgy caught his attention, and during the past four years, his love for both God and the local church have increased through fellowship with Genevans. He recently graduated from UW with a Doctorate in Viola Performance, but his position at Geneva is giving him space to explore a broader range of musical gifts within the context of Christian community. He is grateful for this faith family where he can be challenged, encouraged, and can hopefully inspire people to love Jesus more.

  • Alicia Bosscher

    Communications Coordinator

    alicia@genevacampuschurch.org


    Alicia started attending Geneva as an undergraduate, and though she’s left Madison a few times since for jobs and graduate school, she and her family are happily planted in Madison once again. Alicia and her husband Nate have three young children and enjoy all that Madison has to offer, including ultimate frisbee, bicycling, and community events anywhere from their kids’ local elementary school to the university. Alicia also works part-time as an outpatient dietitian on campus. Somewhere along the way, the desire for organization settled deep in Alicia's soul and, honing her administrative skills, she is happily putting them to work alongside the rest of Geneva's staff.
