Biography

Rev. Dr. Larry Golemon serves as the Executive Director of the Washington Theological Consortium. He received a B.A. in History from Stanford University, a Master of Divinity and a Master of Sacred Theology from the Yale Divinity School, a ThM from Columbia Theological Seminary, and a PhD in contemporary theology from Emory University’s Graduate Division of Religion. He is an ordained Presbyterian minister (PCUSA).

Previously, Golemon has served the wider church in a variety of capacities: youth minister, local pastor, college and seminary professor, missionary, and researcher.  He was  a research associate for the national study of seminary education by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and co-authored their findings in Educating Clergy (2006). He coordinated the interfaith research project at Dominican University of California and the GTU, entitled “Sacred Visions and the Social Good,” which explored religion in public life among Buddhists, Sufis, Native Americans, and faith-based Catholic and Protestant parishes. While at the Alban Institute, Golemon directed the Narrative Leadership project, which explored story-based transformation of congregational life. He also coordinated the “Ecumenical Project” at Virginia Theological Seminary, which identified capacities and new possibilities for ecumenical teaching and learning. He continues to write in theological education, with a forthcoming book that tracks how Protestants, Catholics, and Jews have educated clergy for American culture, specifically as culture-builders in religious and public life.
