Walker Adams, Director of Recruitment and Admission

I think I have the greatest job here in Hamilton Hall. It's a joy and a pleasure to meet bright and talented prospective students from across the globe and help them discern if Sewanee is a good fit for them and their families. As a graduate of the School of Theology, I know the student experience firsthand and am grateful for the formation I received here. Around here we like to say that “theological education is the birthright of all the baptized.” As a layperson, I am proud of all the University has done, and is doing, to help advance theological education for the whole Church.

Vicki Borchers, Director of Publications and Media Relations

I had the privilege of joining the School of Theology in the spring of 2022, after having spent much of my career working overseas in the for-profit world. It is a sincere pleasure to now serve the University of the South, the School of Theology, and the Episcopal Church.

The Rev. Kevin Goodman, Executive Director of Education for Ministry

I am  excited to expand upon the EfM foundations built by those who came before me. The first order of business is to listen—to participants, mentors, trainers, staff, and alumni. I understand that change will be necessary and am counting on the EfM community to transform the program together. I look forward to hearing from you.


Connie Patton, Director of Operations and Financial Administration

Family is my deepest passion, and I do what I can to make good things happen for them. I approach my work with that same philosophy by doing what I can to enhance the learning experience for students and the work environment for colleagues. I take pride in being available and responsive to the needs of students and colleagues, and in providing accurate and organized data to help inform the development of financial strategies for the School. I enjoy my work as part of a caring community, working together to equip leaders for ministry and minimize student loan debt.

The Rev. Casey Perkins, Director of Alumni, Annual Giving, and Church Relations

  I moved to Sewanee in 2019 and, after completing a degree at the School of Theology, felt called to stay and join the team! I am so grateful to be able to see how the Church comes together in this incredible place to form the leaders needed for the future. Ask me about supporting the mission of the School of Theology and all the ways that Episcopalians can get involved and experience the many resources and opportunities that Sewanee has to offer!
