Author Bio

Alex Marshall is Seminarian Intern at the Episcopal Church at Yale (ECY) and a third year Master of Divinity Candidate at Yale Divinity School.  He is a graduate of Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, Alabama were he studied Theology and Philosophy.  Alex is very interested in college or campus ministry and youth ministry and is always excited for an opportunity to teach about theology or the Bible and meet with students, especially in an informal setting.

Alex is also a guitarist with experience as a worship leader at churches in Memphis and Birmingham, and as the Worship Coordinator for the Barbara C. Harris Camp operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts where he played with the band 67 Strings, which you can listen to here.

Having grown up in an evangelical, non-denominational church, Alex has since college explored Baptist, Episcopalian/Anglican, Presbyterian, and Methodist churches.  He spent a year working as the Youth Director for a United Methodist Church near Birmingham and was also involved in campus ministry through University Christian Fellowship in Birmingham before moving to New Haven and becoming involved with ECY.  Theologically he attempts to avoid particular labels, but has a great deal of sympathy for the via media that has historically been one of the markers of Anglicanism and is very interested in the opportunities existentialist and post-moderm philosophers open up for theology in the 21st century.
