Phillips Welcomes New Doctor of Ministry Director

Phillips Theological Seminary (PTS) is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Dr. Kathleen McCallie as Assistant Professor of Ministerial Leadership and Ethics and Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program, effective July 1, 2013.

McCallie, originally ordained in The United Methodist Church, is currently an ordained United Church of Christ (UCC) pastor, and has served many congregations. She is the founding pastor of the Church of the Open Arms, a UCC congregation in Oklahoma City, where she has served in full-time ministry since 1997.  

“My passion for building a just and compassionate society through enhancing faith communities makes working at Phillips an excellent opportunity.  I look forward to being part of the reflection, dialogue, and engagement that the Doctor of Ministry program represents,” said McCallie.

McCallie holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Philosophy from Oklahoma State University; a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University and a Doctor of Philosophy in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma. Her special interest is in international relations and economic justice.

McCallie has served as the chair of the Oklahoma Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and the Clergy Coalition for Human Rights. Her favorite volunteer work has been with the Peace House and RAIN, both of Oklahoma City. She was a member of the first RAIN team in Oklahoma and has led both medical and construction mission teams to Central America (particularly Nicaragua) each of the past seven years.

In addition to her experience serving in various congregational settings and denominational leadership positions McCallie taught government and ethics at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and Oklahoma City Community College. She is currently completing a book project reflecting on ethical issues in church governance and administration. Research areas of interest include ethics of international trade, globalization, and public policy.

McCallie is the proud mother of three children and an avid gardener. She enjoys reading feminist novels and listening to Mozart. She replaces Dr. Nancy Pittman, who was named Dean of Phillips Theological Seminary earlier this year.
