Leaders in the Academy Spotlight on Leslie Bowling-Dyer 2012 Doctoral Fellow

“Part of my calling had to do with how I understood what the community saw in me.”

FTE Doctoral Fellow Leslie Bowling-Dyer is passionate about place and impact. She came to pursue theology after hearing God’s call through those who led ministry communities where she was engaged. She sensed urgency about what she needed to do to matter in the world, and is studying ways to help each new generation of leaders to recognize how their faith shapes their place in the world and how it is a part of the community of many generations of others who have worked to make a difference.
