Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible and Public Ministry

[email protected]

Professor Hall Sharp enjoys examining the intersection of race, gender, and class with the biblical text and contemporary culture using a trauma-informed womanist approach. She is currently working on her manuscript examining survival in the book of Esther. Her experience in church planting, pastoring, and community organizing has shaped her interest in womanist ecclesiology, womanist leadership, and the dynamics of thriving in public ministry, which are also areas of her research interest. She is an ordained minister in the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) and currently serves as a Co-Pastor at The Gathering, A Womanist Church.
