Jill Carattini

An ordained specialized minister, Jill is a key leader in RZIM's emphasis on the arts, heading the Still Point gallery and editor of RZIM's creative writing resource, A Slice of Infinity.

"The Christian imagination indeed presents a God who not only created and noticed beauty, whose own glory offers present encounters in the world, but the God who is not unfamiliar with the world’s brokenness, transforming a disordered creation by stepping closer into it in Jesus Christ. This is a God who takes all the glimpses and introduces the whole—not as an escape from reality but a deepening of it, one that can hold life as well as death."

Jill Carattini is Director of Apologetics, Theology, and the Arts. She is the managing editor of A Slice of Infinity, a daily creative writing resource considering themes from faith and culture. She holds a degree in religion from Hope College, a masters of divinity from Western Theological Seminary, and a Th.M from Duke University, where she studied sacramental theology and the arts. Jill is ordained as a specialized minister in the Reformed Church of America, where she serves on the theology commission.

She is a frequent speaker and panelist and is the acting curator of Still Point, a formal gallery and new focus in RZIM’s growing emphasis on the arts and imagination as a critical means to engage contemporary culture with the person of Christ.

She has lived and worked within a Native American community in Oklahoma, and has studied in the Middle East, participating in a program aimed at understanding the culture, history, and politics of the Middle Eastern conflict. Jill is a native of Pentwater, Michigan, and currently resides with her husband, Tony, and their son in Atlanta, Georgia.
