Congratulations to Dr. Catherine Jensen, (Psy.D., 2007), on her role as the Disaster Spiritual Care Regional Lead for the American Red Cross, eastern Pennsylvania.  Dr. Jensen supervises five disaster spiritual care teams consisting of over 50 care providers throughout 17 counties.  The majority of these are certified/board certified chaplains and/or ordained clergy.








Congratulations to Dr. Carol Reed-Jones (Ed.D., 2014) on the publication of her hymn, “God, Your Mercy Reaches Higher.”  The hymn was published in the 2017 Christian Science Hymnal supplement and is a paraphrase, written by Dr. Reed-Jones, of Psalm 36:5-9, with original words and music.

In April of this year Dr. Ralph Steele, (D.Med., 2013), was selected as a Faculty Evaluator with the American Council of Education (ACE) in Washington, DC to evaluate college, corporate, and military curricula.  Congratulations Dr. Steele.

Dr. James Keating, (Ed.D. 2004) has recently deepened and expanded his interest in painting.  In addition to his full time position as an English professor at Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana, Dr. Keating continues to cultivate his artistic talents.  We at the GTF celebrate the breadth and depth of the talents of our students, faculty and alumni!  Some of Dr. Keating’s paintings can be seen below.
