Revival at Riverside: Rev. Dr. Jennifer Carner

July 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This summer, Riverside is going into revival! For four Sundays, in the spirit of old-time church revivals, we will feature guest preachers and special music during our morning worship services.

Revivals are a time for the church to gather in worship, be refreshed, restored, renewed, and revived. They offer encouragement and spiritual strength, enabling us to engage in ministry with fresh eyes and new energy.

The Rev. Dr, Jennifer L. Carner is the daughter of Pastor J.W. Carner and Brenda Carner. She served in ministry with her father for several years. Under his leadership, she was licensed to preach and bring authenEc transformaEon to the Kingdom and the world in August of 2000. She was later ordained at Greater Travelers Rest BapEst Church, in 2008. Jennifer has served as the first female ExecuEve/Lead Pastor of The Greater Travelers Rest BapEst Church in Decatur, GA, where Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. is the Senior Pastor. She currently gives leadership to their Hope Global OperaEons. In addiEon, she provides preaching and teaching support to the Senior Pastor.

Jennifer has a passion for HomileEcs, CommunicaEons Theory, and higher learning. She has obtained her Ph.D. from ChrisEan Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, I.N. in African American Preaching and Sacred Rhetoric. Dr. Jen’s dissertaEon centered on the history of African American preaching.

Jennifer published her first book enEtled, 31 Days of Winning, a DevoEonal Journal. She describes her first published work in this way. “Preachers, influencers, and creaEves are human. Faith and spirituality do not exempt us from heartbreak. 31 Days of Winning is a compilaEon of the words that helped me find the will to show up in my own life. It is my prayer that these words will help others the way that they helped me.”

Dr. Jen has been inducted into the esteemed Morehouse Board of Ministers and Laity for her commitment to preaching, teaching, and ministry through a Christocentric and liberaEonist lens. She seeks to encourage everyone around her. She conEnues to live out the words of the first song she learned to sing, “I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody who can save anybody.”
