Jenny Williams

Justice & Jubilee Correspondent

Jenny Williams (she/her), a native southern Californian, followed God’s call to go to seminary in North Carolina. There she met her now-spouse, and the college basketball wasn’t half bad, either.  She came to West Virginia through the unofficial state recruitment program called Marriage (because Mountaineers always go home). Jenny is an ordained United Methodist pastor who believes the Church needs to reclaim her prophetic witness by speaking into issues of injustice and walking with people marginalized by Empire. Her current attempt to follow Jesus has her focusing on solidarity, not charity, particularly with queer folx and BIPOC. Food Jenny likes: sushi, Cookout shakes, venison, ramps. Favorite forms of locomotion: kayaking, walking, hiking.  Places Jenny would rather be: beaches, forests, bodies of water.  Music which has more in common than you think it does: punk and bluegrass. Jenny and her spouse make their home in Morgantown, where she currently serves, with their two kids who don’t suck, their dog, Stella, and their cat, Mouse.
