Colin Cushman is a native of Kent, WA. He lives with his wife Madi, daughter Sophia, and their dog Sugar. Both Madi and Colin studied at Willamette University (Salem, OR); and Madi and Colin did graduate studies at Boston College and Boston University, respectively. Colin has also served as a hospital chaplain. Previously, he served a Methodist church on Bainbridge Island. His outdoor interests include mountain biking, hiking, and photography. He also loves playing music with a wide variety of instruments and is an avid reader.
Colin’s specialty of study has been Biblical Studies—especially focusing on social justice issues in antiquity such as imperialism, ethnicity, gender, and poverty—and its intersection with current social issues.
As a teacher, he loves to see people grow deeper into their faith to be able to understand the world-changing implications of what they profess. These convictions then need to be lived out in one’s social, political, and cultural worlds. By caring for the most vulnerable among us, he believes, we can thus provide the opportunity for all to flourish and have a chance to live most fully the life that God has given them.
