The JWW Lectureship Team is excited to announce that our 2024 Lecturer is Rev. Dr. Randy S. Woodley!
Rev. Dr. Woodley is a recognized leader in the fields of Indigenous and Intercultural Studies, Ecology, Spirituality, Race, Theology, and Mission. Randy is a Cherokee descendant recognized by the Keetoowah Band. Randy and his wife Edith, an Eastern Shoshone tribal member, are co-creators and co-sustainers of Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice and Eloheh Farm & Seeds.
Randy recently retired as Distinguished Professor of Faith and Culture and Director of Intercultural and Indigenous Studies at Portland Seminary. Randy and his wife Edith invite people to a new relationship and understanding of Creation, History, and Earth Justice. The JWW Team also plans to tie these ideas to FCC’s 150th Anniversary.
