Rev. Dr. Kelly Colwell

Friday evening will include an All-Assembly Dinner and Opening Worship Service with the Rev. Dr. Kelly Colwell, Co-Senior Minister of First Congregational Church, Berkeley, as our keynoter. She earned a Ph.D. in practical theology from Graduate Theological Union, with a dissertation on the church during the pandemic. At First Congregational Church, she supports several of the ministry teams, oversees online activities and communications, and invites the church into deeper work on mental health, disability, race, gender, sexuality, and other axes of difference, in addition to preaching and pastoral care. Kelly's primary spiritual gifts are fearlessness, hospitality, and joy.

On Saturday, April 20, we will engage in Worshipful Work in the morning and Workshops after lunch. We will gather together again for our closing worship with Dr. Colwell.
