In August, Jenn was awarded the Cross of St Augustine by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the second highest international award for service within Anglicanism, for her service through biblical scholarship to the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Over the last four years, Jenn served as Chair of the St Augustine Seminar and oversaw the preparation of all the biblical materials for the Lambeth Conference this summer. She led a team of scholars from 19 countries to create the biblical materials on the New Testament book of 1 Peter, which formed the foundation of the Conference.

With four colleagues from Kenya, the UK, Brazil, and North India, (pictured above) Jenn also helped lead a two-day retreat for the bishops, including preaching at Canterbury Cathedral, and she assisted the Archbishop of Canterbury with five hour-long expositions on 1 Peter given across the Conference.
