Jenny Rae Armstrong is passionate about building up the body of Christ by building up women, in her rural community and around the globe. An award-winning writer and teaching pastor at Darrow Road Wesleyan Church in Superior, WI, she tackles sticky topics with girl-next-door humor and grace.
Jenny’s work has appeared in dozens of publications including RELEVANT, Her.Meneutics, Mutuality and Red Letter Christians. Her articles on gender justice and empowering women and girls have won three of the Evangelical Press Association’s Higher Goals awards, and two of the Associated Church Press’s Best of the Christian Press awards. She is the author of Christians for Biblical Equality’s youth curriculum Called Out! Kingdom Living for Missional Teens, which is being used from church basements in rural America to public high schools across Eastern Africa. Her next book, Don’t Hide Your Light Under a Laundry Basket: 150 Bright Ideas for Wannabe World-Changers, will be released by Leafwood Publishers in August of 2016.
Jenny has a B.A. in Global Studies from the University of Northwestern, and is pursuing an M.Div at North Park Theological Seminary. The January/February 2015 issue of The Covenant Companion recognized her one of the Evangelical Covenant Church’s “40 under 40: Young Covenanters making a significant impact locally and around the world.” A former missionary kid, Jenny has settled in Northern Wisconsin with her husband Aaron and their four sons, where she splits her time between studying, pastoring, writing, and mommy-ing.
