Greg Carpinello, Executive Director (he/him)


Somewhere along the way, I discovered that my vocation in this world is leadership at the intersection of faith and justice. That journey has been forever altered, shaped, and inspired through my experience at Jesuit organizations. One might say, I have been ruined for life, by what I have seen, heard, and loved for the last 20+ years. Now, I am thrilled to serve as the Executive Director of JVC Northwest.

A native Cincinnatian with a short stop in Boston, Massachusetts, I am excited to call Portland and the Pacific Northwest my home now. My wife, Maura, and I resonate deeply with the four core values of JVC Northwest, and we are striving every day to raise a family committed to living simply, in community with others, and finding ways to live out a faith that does justice. Our three sons, Andrew, Dominic, and Joshua are active and lively, animated by all things outdoors and sports of every kind. Maura is a skier and gardener. I am a marathoner and amateur-woodworker. Professionally, ministry and social justice education at the Jesuit schools of Xavier University and Boston College have been where I have devoted my passion, and they are also the places where I have grown the most. All of it is to say, JVC Northwest is a perfect fit for me and our family.
