Jennifer has been a church pastor, college chaplain, and non-profit leader. She is a native of South Carolina, ordained in The United Methodist Church, a graduate of Duke University several times over with a BA, MDiv, and PhD. She is the author of, Feminine Registers: The Importance of Women’s Voices for Preaching and an editor of the volume, Preaching Gospel: Essays in Honor of Richard Lischer.
