Preschool Director reading to class during snack time.

Jade McDowell

I am The Pursuit Preschool Director and teacher. I am excited to teach, learn and grow closer to Jesus alongside your family! I was born and raised in Saskatchewan and moved to Minot, ND in 1994. I graduated from Minot High School in 1998 and moved to Canada to attend a university. In 2001, I moved back to Minot, got married, and started my family. I now have three children, Ryen (21), Samari (19) and Reed (11).


Before my current role as a preschool director and teacher here at The Pursuit, I owned and operated an in-home daycare in Surrey, ND. After leaving Surrey, I returned to school and earned my degree as a speech and language pathology assistant. I was the speech and language pathology assistant for 8 years in the Des-Lacs Burlington Public School District.


I am eager to see the many ways God will move in this place!
