Our Team

Rebecca Irwin-Diehl

Director of the ABHMS Center for Continuous Learning

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.
