Denise Janssen is a Christian educator, author, and scholar. Her research focuses on faith transitions in life, particularly the transition from adolescence into young adulthood, using ethnographic research as a primary tool of inquiry. She also designs, writes, and consults in the area of curriculum development and best practices in faith formation in communities of faith. Her 25+ years in youth ministry and pastoral ministry equip her well as a scholar-practitioner with a passion for student learning.
Her books include: Fostering Faith: Teaching and Learning in the Christian Church (Valley Forge: Judson, 2014), Reclaimed: Faith in an Emerging Generation (Valley Forge: Judson, 2015), and Educating for Redemptive Community: Essays in Honor of Jack Seymour and Margaret Ann Crain (Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 2015). She is also the author of numerous articles and curriculum resources.
An ordained minister in the American Baptist Churches, USA (ABC-USA), Janssen maintains a commitment to the local church and denominational life. In 2015, the denomination recognized her efforts with the Luther Wesley Smith Education Award for faithful leadership in educational ministries at the college/seminary level. She currently serves as a staff pastor at Laurel Park United Methodist Church.
Janssen also serves as executive director of the independent ecumenical non-profit, The Resource Center, a 15,000-volume collection of books, video, curriculum, art, and artifacts for local congregations which is housed in Kingsley Hall.
