Craig A. Ford, Ph.D.
Craig A. Ford, Jr., is Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at Saint Norbert College, where he teaches courses in Christian Ethics, Religious Identity, Peace and Justice, and in Christian Theology more broadly while also serving as Co-Director for the Peace and Justice Interdisciplinary Minor.
A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Yale Divinity School, and Boston College, Dr. Ford writes on topics at the intersection of queer theory, critical race theory, and the Catholic moral tradition. His current book project, titled Works of Art: Sexuality, Gender, Race and a New Theology of Embodiment is currently under contract with Fortress Press, and he is working on an edited work, funded by a grant from the Louisville Institute, that will go on to represent perspectives on the future of theology told exclusively from the perspectives of Queer Catholic Theologians of Color.
Considering himself a scholar-activist, Dr. Ford’s work bridges the academy and a wider popular audience, with publications in professional outlets like the Journal of Moral Theology as well as in popular outlets like Commonweal Magazine and the National Catholic Reporter. Dr. Ford is also sought out as a workshop leader on issues of racial, sexual, and gender justice, working not only with Catholic parishes but with other colleges and universities.
When he’s not working, you’ll find him cooking, crossfitting, or hanging out with his dog, Yogi. He currently lives in Green Bay, WI, but has left his heart in New York City
timone davis*, DMin
timone davis is a cradle Catholic who was a “pewster” until she discovered that the uselessness of the Church was because she wasn’t giving anything of herself. After
committing to getting involved, her life changed. Her first ministry was with the RCIA, where she not only welcomed others into the Church, but also revitalized her own spirituality.
After working for the Archdiocese of Chicago as the coordinator of ReCiL – Reclaiming Christ in Life Young Adult Ministry, timone co-founded PEACE centered WHOLENESS with her husband Orlando, where they are blending clinical counseling and spiritual companioning.
In addition to running a business, timone is an assistant professor in the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago. In her spare time, she serves as the
treasurer of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium and the National Institute for Ministry with Young Adults.
timone's dynamic energy and deep spirituality enhance her brand of teaching that engages one’s spirit through the use of storytelling. No matter the occasion, timone's
mission is to help others open their hearts and minds to the soul-saving power of God's Grace, Love and Mercy.
*dr. timone davis uses lower case letters in the spelling of her name to indicate her
