How would you describe your religious affiliation and/or spiritual background?


In one word, how would you describe the way you feel about the GTU?


What excites you about becoming a member of the GTU’s Board of Trustees?

The GTU is, and can continue to be, a model of the way forward through the divisiveness in our country today. The acknowledged interconnectedness and mutual dependence of the GTU's member schools, centers, and affiliates is this way forward. The GTU’s leadership’s humility, mutual respect, and willingness to work together for the common good inspires me.

What do you find inspiring about GTU 2.0 and the future of the GTU?

We are living through an era of change. I believe that theological education can be a major part of the healing needed for a saner and safer future. GTU 2.0 aims to ensure that competent theological education, in community, remains available for a better future.
