One of the joys of working at The Veritas Forum is witnessing God’s daily provision for his work. Every day we see new evidences of grace in the lives of students encountering Christ or doors opened on new campuses.
It is an honor to introduce Veritas friends and family to Bethany Jenkins, another recent evidence of God’s provision. This July, Bethany signed on to join Veritas as Vice President of Forums and Content. Prior to this role, she worked in the Federal government, on Wall Street, in Big Law, and in various faith-based nonprofits, including The King’s College, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, and The Gospel Coalition.
Bethany brings with her a wealth of experience that will benefit our partners and the students we serve — from aiding various constituencies in the U.S. Congress to publishing content with the Gospel Coalition to helping college students discover their callings at The King’s College to running large-scale events at the New York Stock Exchange. Her broad experience is matched by her energy, enthusiasm, and deep Christian commitment.
Raised in Pensacola, Florida, Bethany’s parents introduced her to Jesus at a young age. She spent her college years at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and then made her home in Washington, D.C., and New York City. In New York, Bethany studied law at Columbia Law School, was an active member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, and volunteered with International Justice Mission and Hope for New York.
After thirteen years in New York, she moved to Cambridge in September to join Veritas.
“I never thought I’d leave New York, but moving to Cambridge is a testimony of how excited I am about the opportunity and team at Veritas,” Bethany said. “Serving students during their college years, when they’re asking questions of meaning and purpose, is a unique opportunity. Veritas has a stellar reputation of faithful ministry marked by humility, excellence, and service, and the team under the leadership of David Hobbet and the Veritas Board is talented, passionate, and visionary.”
“It is hard to imagine someone better prepared to lead our forums and content work into a new season of growth, innovation, and impact in the lives of students. Bethany brings to Veritas a passion for Christ, years of experience serving students, a mastery of storytelling and editing, and a seasoned professionalism honed on Wall Street and Capitol Hill. The partners and students we serve are already benefitting from her leadership” – David Hobbet, Executive Director, The Veritas Forum
