A Christian of Jewish origins, Ken Howard has been an ordained priest in the Episcopal Church since 1993, focusing on church planting and congregational vitality. Prior to ordination Ken was a consultant in organizational development, strategic planning, and conflict resolution. Ken holds a Master of Divinity degree from Virginia Theological Seminary, with honors in Church History for his ground-breaking research into the Jewish origins of early Christianity, published in Jewish Christianity in the Early Church.
Respected and trusted for his expertise in conflict resolution and consensus building among groups with opposing theological and political views, Ken has been called upon to facilitate dialogs on issues ranging from human sexuality to interfaith relations.
When not occupied with the business of pastoring and growing the theologically diverse congregation he helped plant, Ken is available for presentations, workshops, and coaching on the principles of incarnational Christianity outlined in Paradoxy: Creating Christian Community beyond Us and Them.
