Kelley Hudlow

Rev. Kelley Hudlow, a 2024 graduate of Bethany’s Master of Arts in Theopoetics and Writing program, will join the faculty of Bexley Seabury Seminary as permanent Instructor of Preaching, beginning in the fall of 2024.

Hudlow has most recently served as Canon for Vocations and Community Engagement for the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. She holds a bachelor’s degree from University of South Alabama and a law degree from the University of Alabama. Hudlow also completed a graduate certificate in homeletic peer coaching at Vanderbilt University.

At Bexley Seabury, a nonresidential seminary based in Chicago, Illinois, Hudlow will teach foundational and elective courses in preaching, participate in field education courses, and provide mentoring to students.

In a press release from Bexley Seabury, Hudlow commented: “I am excited to join Bexley Seabury as the Instructor in Preaching, and I look forward to collaborating with students to create a learning community that invites them to deepen their relationship with scripture, try new practices, be vulnerable, and give and receive feedback. My mission is to help students develop a practice of preaching that enables them to thrive in their ministry and develops their authentic preaching voice so that they can lead their communities into deeper relationships with God, each other, and their neighbors.”

During her last semester at Bethany, Hudlow preached during a weekly chapel service. You can watch a video of that service here.
