The Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth to Be a Fellow in Residence
The Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth, rector and provost for St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, Glasgow, Scotland, will be visiting The School of Theology from Oct. 22 through Nov. 2, 2012 as part of the fellow in residence program. Holdsworth graduated with a master of theology degree from the University of Edinburgh in 1996. He holds a certificate in Christian ministry and mission studies from the Theological Institute of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
With the support of St. Mary’s Cathedral, Holdsworth is taking time to focus on the study of how large congregations can reach beyond their locality, becoming churches whose influence expands across a wider area. Holdsworth will spend time in Sewanee reflecting on this theme along with gathering insight on how clergy in the United States successfully lead diverse congregations. During his travel in the states he will also visit Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver.
Participants in the fellow in-residence program are clergy and laity who spend two weeks at The School of Theology for a time of reflection, recreation, study, and sharing in community. While there is no formal program, fellows are provided with faculty consultants and opportunities to attend classes and other University events.
Please welcome Rev. Holdsworth to the Mountain!
