Rev. Gina Gilland Campbell, United Methodist, served as the first non-Episcopalian to lead Washington National Cathedral’s Worship life.
Rev. Campbell believes we become what we pray. A liturgist’s gestures, presence, and care with primary symbols shape the deep religious affections and lived prayer of the worshipping Body of Christ.
Thirty years of engagement with Family Systems thinking informs her teaching. She invites students to live out of their own authenticity, to connect deeply with others, to discover the calm and confident leadership that arises.
In four decades of ministry, she has served churches in Georgia, New Jersey, Texas and Maryland.
