Jenny Williams

The Rev. Jennifer C. Williams is currently the pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church in Kingwood, West Virginia. She was born into a large urban congregation in southern California, and has previously served and worked in a variety of church settings. In North Carolina she was an intern at rural small-membership churches and an associate pastor at a large suburban church, and in West Virginia she was the pastor of a two point charge in small towns and later a station church in a small town. Her lectionary reflections have been published in the Christian Century and Homily Service. She has a B.A. from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and an M. Div from Duke Divinity School. Currently, Jenny is the “mean mom” because she won’t yet permit her 7-year-old daughter to read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire due to its theme of adolescent romance and because she is opposed to her 5-year-old son’s habit of picking his nose during the children’s sermon.
