Margaret Manning Shull


Margaret Manning Shull joined the RZIM Speaking and Writing Team in 2007 after having served as a pastor for over seven years. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Agnes Scott College before going on to earn her Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Her pastoral ministry focused on teaching, discipleship, spiritual formation, and pastoral care and counseling.  Her research interests include topics in philosophical theology, world religions, science and faith, human sexuality, and theology in the arts.

Passionate about communicating the gospel in ways that engage both heart and mind, Margaret’s pastoral ministry grounds her speaking and writing in a relational and practical style. Margaret seeks to address the critical intersections between the Christian faith and lived experience in order to engage Christians and non-Christians in conversations that count.

In her free time, Margaret enjoys travel, gardening, hiking, cycling, running, and taking care of her menagerie of pets. She currently lives in Bellingham, WA, with her husband, David.
