Rev. Rebecca Irwin-Diehl, PhD, is director of the ABHMS Center for Continuous Learning, which was launched in summer 2021. Rev. Rebecca holds a Master of Theological Studies from Palmer Theological Seminary of Eastern University, as well as a Master of Arts in Theology and the PhD in Theology from Villanova University. Her research has focused on lived spirituality, especially among those who are religiously disaffiliated or who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious." Rebecca is passionately committed, both personally and vocationally, to lifelong learning, especially when it comes to equipping other disciples with the tools they need to pursue ongoing faith formation and spiritual growth, individually and in community. In addition to her work with ABHMS, Rebecca serves as associate minister at the Second Baptist Church of Germantown, in Philadelphia, PA, where Rev. Crystal Jennings is pastor.
Jennifer Sanborn, M.A. (Spirituality) and M.S. (Higher Education), leads the CCL’s offerings in faithful finance and vocational discernment, drawing on 25 years of leadership in colleges, universities, and a seminary, pastoring a local church, and launching a young adult service community. Jennifer enjoys building authentic community online and in person, and is trained as a coach for ministry contexts.
Leda is excited to provide her administrative gifts, multilingual skills (Spanish and Italian), and organizational talents in support of the Center for Continuous Learning. She has a passion for knowledge and feels blessed to be part of the CCL team to provide support in their ministries of faith formation and leader training, focusing on ABHMS mission priorities.
