“This is why I'm so invested in not only our students, but in the wider community. Because we really want to be an instrument of justice in the wider community. There will be no American dream, no community, no society, in which all can flourish unless we invest in that.”
Dr. David Mellott is the head of Christian Theological Seminary, a unique institution with a series of core values upon which their mission is focused. Not just from the perspective of training clergy, but Dr. Mellott and CTS are focused on teaching the values of human dignity, justice, diversity to their students and impacting real and lasting change across communities. As Dr. Mellott shares: “I do see our students really coming to life when they realize that so much of what’s important about life isn’t necessarily about their own individual lives, but about the community.”
Dr. Mellott holds a PhD from Emory University, an MA in Religious Studies and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, and a BA in English Literature and Latin American Studies from the Pontifical College Josephinum.
