Dean of the Faculty Sarah B. Drummond is pleased to announce the appointment of the Rev. Dr. Hope N. Luckie, O.S.L, as Associate in Field Education and Spiritual Formation. Hope succeeds Kathy Windsor in the Field Education Program, who retired in June after 16 years of service to Andover Newton.
Hope is a United Methodist minister who currently serves as pastor for Christ Church in Wellesley. She has taught in the Field Education Program at Andover Newton since 2005. Hope has worked with students in campus ministry and field education supervision at Boston University and Illinois Wesleyan University. She also worked with Sarah Drummond on a special project last year on United Methodist relations.
Hope earned her Master of Divinity degree at Boston University School of Theology. She completed her Doctor of Ministry degree at Wesley Theological Seminary in May of 2012 with a project entitled “Educating Global Citizens: Interreligious Programming for University Students.”
Hope’s responsibilities will include working with field education supervisors and students and supporting student peer leaders for Community Covenant Groups, Andover Newton’s year-long orientation groups for new students. Director of Ministry Studies Jeff Jones writes, “Hope’s extensive experience in the Field Education Program, her commitment to ministry, and her skills in working with others have already proven to be invaluable assets to our work. I’ve learned already that she is a joy to work with and am confident that both students and supervisors will discover that in the coming months.”
