Jay Carney

Associate Professor of Theology


More about me:

 I am an Associate Professor of Theology who came to Creighton in 2011. My research and teaching engage Church History and World Christianity, especially modern Africa. 

I am married with four children. My wife Becky is a remarkable woman, and our children have given both of us much love and laughter. I grew up in the Washington, DC area and have also lived in Wisconsin and North Carolina among other places. Prior to coming to Creighton, I worked in campus ministry at the University of Arkansas. In my spare time, I enjoy running, cycling, playing soccer, and listening to music of all types.     

Writing these reflections:

After years as a reader of Magnificat and then Give Us This Day, I am now seeing the other side! These reflections entail a very different style of writing than academic journal articles, and I've also gained newfound respect for the homilist's task! I feel that I am "preaching" to myself as much as anyone else. It's wonderful to know that so many people are walking together as disciples of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers!
