Samantha Gilmore currently serves as an adjunct professor at The General Theological Seminary and a graduate instructor at Princeton Theological Seminary. She is a recipient of an MDiv and MA in Christian Education from Princeton Theological Seminary and a BA in Biblical Studies and Music and Worship from Trinity Lutheran College.

Samantha is exploring what preachers have to learn from releasing physically (as well as psychologically and spiritually) protective habits, defenses, and inhibitions, for the sake of restoring their bodies and voices to a state of openness. Her desire is for preachers to have the capacity to respond fully and honestly to the movement of the Spirit, the words of Scripture, and the people to whom they preach without their message being subdued and distorted by habit. As a part of her training, Samantha is studying to become a Designated Linklater Teacher, with the aim of thoughtfully appropriating this voice method into the preaching classroom.
