Captain The Reverend Jennifer Renouf
Jennifer+ is a native of Newfoundland and misses the salt air, going “out the bay” to the family cabin on an island in the Bay of Exploits, and spending time with her large extended family.
Jennifer+ completed her undergraduate degree in Business Administration (BBA) at Memorial University. Jennifer+ then relocated to complete her Master of Divinity (M.Div.) at Huron University College at Western in London, Ontario. On completion of her M.Div., Jennifer+ returned home to Western Newfoundland to begin her ordained ministry on the Great Northern Peninsula.
Jennifer’s career led her to become a chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces. Enrolling in December 2019, Jennifer began her first posting in February 2020 at CFB Edmonton. Jennifer+ will complete her occupational training with the military in November 2022, which was impacted by the disruption of trainings because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Jennifer+ enjoys her ministry of presence that a Military Chaplain – known as a Padre – undertakes on a day-to-day basis, spending time with the troops and meeting them where they are on their life journey. Jennifer+ appreciates that St. Timothy’s has provided her with a place to execute her priestly ministry.
