Pfeiffer's Department of Religion has for the past year found a home in the talented and justice-oriented faculty of the Humanities. We are thrilled to serve with faculty who are responsible for this statement:

Great story about Sam Hanlon!

When Samantha Hanlon ’19 calls herself “a massive, insane advocate for mission work,” she’s probably not exaggerating. Read more about her mission to give back at https://www.pfeiffer.edu/news/mission-giving-back.

Dear Friends,

with the start of the fall semester now squarely behind us, we are happy to announce that, after the recent retirements of Patty Meyers and Kathleen Kilbourne, the Religion Department at Pfeiffer again has a full complement of faculty. As many of you know, Dr. Leah Robinson joined the department last year as our Associate Professor of Practical Theology (to see more about Leah, see last year's winter newsletter posted below), and Dr. Heidi Miller this Fall as Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Director of the MAPT Program. Dr. Heidi Miller joined us in August as Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Program Director for our Master of Arts in Practical Theology.

Dr. Miller comes to us from Duke Divinity School, where she was the director of their Neighborhood Seminary program and taught in the ThD and MACP programs. She has past experience as a faculty member at Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, and at Eastern Mennonite University. Her teaching and research interests include Worship and Spiritual Formation, particularly as they relate to the topics of embodiment and social justice. Her Ph.D. is from Catholic University of America. We are excited about the new energy and possible new directions the MAPT program may take. If you are interested, know somebody who may be interested in our MAPT program, or just want to talk about the future of this program, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Miller at [email protected].

Creative ministry by Pfeiffer alumnus Meg Gaston:
I'm excited that a Pfeiffer alum Jonathan LeMaster-Smith will be teaching his first class at his alma matter through the Wesley-Pfeiffer partnership in a very attractive hybrid format. It begins with three days face-to-face and the rest of the class online. If you would like to take UM History and Doctrine at the master's level this may be for you. Here's the link for more information:
Pfeiffer University Religion and Practical Theology faculty joins the faculty of Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary in saluting its newest Ph. D. - Dr. Jonathan LeMaster Smith - who holds both the baccalaureate and master's degree from Pfeiffer. He successfully defended his dissertation, HAUNTED RURAL LANDSCAPES: A CHRISTIAN PEDAGOGICAL RESPONSE TO RURAL DEINDUSTRIALIZATION. Jonathan's wife, Shannon, is also a Pfeiffer alum. Congratulations Jonathan!
