”Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
Gina Occhiogrosso has served the Lord as a Christian educator for nine years. She previously taught 2nd grade and 3rd grade at Bergen County Christian Academy, where she met her husband, John (who was teaching in the high school at that time). Blessed with three children, Gina had the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom for 12 years. She then returned to teaching at BCCA until God opened a door for her to minister at HCA in 2022, just in time for her two daughters to become students in HCA’s 8th and 12th-grade classes.
Gina loves spending time with her family, cooking, baking, and teaching her students about the love of Jesus. It has been a blessing for her to be able to minister to children in a Christian environment, and she is looking forward to continuing that ministry as an HCA Defender!
