Laura Mendenhall

Laura Mendenhall, senior philanthropy advisor for the Texas Presbyterian Foundation, served as president of Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta from 2000 to 2009 and is grateful for the guidance of ATS during that time. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian church (USA), her research interests include the role of the sacraments in the life of the church, the use of daily prayer in structuring Christian community, and strategies for faithful proclamation of Christian stewardship. She came to serve a theological school from the pastorate and returned to do the same, working as well with the Texas Presbyterian Foundation. Mendenhall received an MA from the Presbyterian School of Christian Education, an MDiv from San Francisco Theological Seminary, and a DMin from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
