The Center for Anglican Communion Studies’ Faculty Fellows

Date: July 20, 2021

The work of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies is enriched by the participation and leadership of scholars and practitioners from VTS and around the globe. To be fully aligned with the mission of VTS, and to be responsive to the needs of the church, it is vital that VTS faculty and others help shape the goals of the Center.

It is for these reasons that the Center has fellows. Faculty advisory fellows work with the staff to support the ongoing work of the Center by participating in events and hosting guests, as well as planning future programming. They may be asked to participate in convened summits, represent VTS off-campus, host webinars, and publish essays, blog posts, or resource reviews.

We are honored to have Hannah Matis, Ph.D and the Rev. John Yieh, Ph.D. as our current faculty advisory fellows. Dr. Matis has participated in CACS lunchtime fora, hosted webinars, and served on event panels bringing her expertise and interests in church history, biblical interpretation, world Christianity and ecology. She will present at the first CACS event of the 2021-22 academic year on “How Colonialism Worked” on September 28, 2021.

Dr. Yieh has been a faculty member of the CACS/Trinity Wall Street-funded project, Building Dialogue Across Conflict, which brought together four teams across the Communion to examine local issues of conflict and the cultural and Biblical resources that could support peace-building and dialogue. Dr. Yieh’s essay on New Testament perspectives on peace will be featured in an upcoming publication from the project.

Both Dr. Yieh and Dr. Matis are wise, warm, and welcome members of the CACS team.
