About the Author

Minister Carolyn Jennings Thompson presides as a District Court Judge in the Ninth Judicial District. She presides over various types of cases including the abuse, neglect and dependency of children, juvenile delinquency, issues involving the breakdown of families and marriages, and those dealing with domestic violence. As a minister and judge, she is inspired to educate the church community regarding victims of domestic abuse - many of whom often attend our local churches seeking pastoral care and counseling because of abusive relationships, and who TRUST the advice of those holding positions of authority and leadership within the church. Her dual role offers a unique perspective of the church’s decision to respond or its decision to remain silent about domestic violence behind church doors. Prior to becoming a judge, she advocated on behalf of domestic violence victims for over 13 years as a domestic/family law attorney. She includes her childhood exposure to domestic violence and personal relationships as testimonials supporting the urgent call for educating the church community. Admittedly, she too wore the VEIL like so many women in the church. On November 4, 2008, Judge Thompson was elected as the first female judge to preside in the 9th District in over 15 years. Her county seat is Oxford, North Carolina, however, she holds court in all four surrounding counties of Vance, Warren, Franklin and Granville. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Hampton University and a Juris Doctor degree from North Carolina Central University School of Law. She is a licensed and ordained Minister of the Gospel. In May 2007, she completed the Duke University Divinity School’s Pastoral Care curriculum, which enables her to volunteer as a hospital chaplain. In 2008, she founded the ABIGAIL’S VEIL ministry to provide domestic violence training for clergy and church leaders. The need to inform clergy became obvious during many years of representing abused women and children. Many of whom stayed in their abusive homes and relationships based on pastoral counseling, church traditions and stigmas promoted within church doctrines. As an advocate for families living free of violence. It is Minister Thompson’s prayer that God will grant her wisdom and resources to boldly educate the faith community in properly addressing and preventing domestic violence.
