Taylor Telford, PhD
An Idaho native, Taylor attended Whitworth University where she studied Theology. After serving as a youth intern at a local PCUSA church, she moved to the east coast where she received her M.Div. from Princeton Seminary and served at a New Worshiping Community in Philadelphia as an ordained Teaching Elder and pastor of worship and music. From there she moved to Scotland where she earned her PhD in theology, specifically regarding the intersection of Christology (Jesus), anthropology (humanity), and identity. She currently serves as the Associate Pastor for Imaginative Worship at Knox Presbyterian Church in Spokane, WA, and as adjunct faculty at Whitworth University in addition to The Seattle School. She is passionate about the Gospel and its expression in reconciliation, inclusion, justice, witness, and creativity. When she’s not working, Taylor can be found enjoying the beauty of the Pacific and Inland Northwest.
