Fr. Gregory Jensen, Ph.D.

Professor
St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary

Fr. Gregory Jensen, Ph.D. (Duquesne University) is a priest of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-USA and a professor at St Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary where he teaches social ethics and young adult faith development. Until the monopolistic practices of the American Psychological Association changed state licensure laws, he was an academic psychologist. Now he’s just a priest who knows a lot about psychology. Nevertheless, he is still a full member of the APA, the American Association of Christian Counselors and a member of the Soul Care Certification group an Evangelical Christian organization working to certify Christian psychologist.

Currently, he is the priest of Ss Cyril & Methodius Orthodox Church. To the delight of many and the distress of others, the parish is located on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

He has been actively involved with the Acton Institute for the last 10 years. In 2018, he traveled to Guatemala to report on that country’s mistreatment of Orthodox nuns (“Black balloons for the lost orphans:  With the merciful, wealth creating nuns of Guatemala”).  He is the author of The Cure for Consumerism and in the process of writing a second monograph on Orthodox Christian witness in the free market.
