Profile
Samantha Gilmore is a PhD Candidate in Practical Theology, focusing on Homiletics with an emphasis in Speech Communication in Ministry. She has served as an adjunct professor at The General Theological Seminary and a graduate instructor at Princeton Theological Seminary. Her research focuses on vulnerability as an essential dynamic for Christian preaching that may be fostered through theologically alert, embodied voice training in the preaching classroom.

Samantha is also a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher and a member of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association. She hopes to continue developing fruitful relationships between theater, performance studies, and preaching in order to help preachers find their voices for embodied proclamation that corresponds to the freedom and abundance of the gospel.
