Keynote Speaker: Belva Brown Jordan
The Reverend Belva Brown Jordan serves as the Associate Dean for Curriculum and Assessment, associate professor of the practice of ministry at Claremont School of Theology; and Dean of Disciples Seminary Foundation (Claremont). Rev. Jordan’s ministry and service with the church, and in higher education, spans twenty-eight years. She began her ministerial career as a denominational executive for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) with the Division of Homeland Ministry (Indianapolis, IN) as the director of racial/ethnic ministry. Before making the transition to theological education, she also served as the denomination’s director of youth ministry focusing on leader development with youth. Jordan’s first faculty appointment was with Lancaster Theological Seminary (Lancaster, PA). Field Education and the practice of ministry were her primary assignments. After eight years at Lancaster, having earned tenure and served as dean of the faculty for one year, she moved on to Harvard University Divinity School (Cambridge, MA). For seven years Rev. Jordan served as the assistant dean for student life at Harvard Divinity, always seeking to build a bridge of support for students beyond the classroom. When the opportunity presented itself to serve in a Disciples of Christ affiliated seminary, Rev. Jordan became the associate dean for admissions and student services at Phillips Theological Seminary (Tulsa, OK). During the summer of 2013, Jordan made the move to Claremont, CA to join the academic administrative team at Claremont School of Theology. At the recent General Board meeting in Indianapolis, Belva was nominated as Moderator-Elect for the Disciples of Christ.
