About The Program

Dr. Adam Hearlson completed his doctorate in Homiletics at Princeton Theological Seminary. His dissertation, "Preaching as Sabotage: Power, Practice, and Proclamation", examines the role of oppressive power dynamics in local congregations and how preaching might be shaped as an art of holy subversion. Originally from California, Adam received his B.A. from Vanguard University and his M. Div from Princeton Theological Seminary. He has also served congregations in Costa Mesa, California, at the Princeton University Chapel, and in Warren, New Jersey. Adam is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.

Currently, Adam's research interests include the role of worship in social resistance, how the visual images are being incorporated into the preaching moment, and the role of the food in Christian ritual. Adam is fascinated by the myriad ways in which people live out their faith. When he is not leading worship or teaching, he enjoys NBA basketball games or cooking for his family.
