Biography

Dr. Clark is the Director of Online Learning and Faculty Associate in World Christianity. Before coming to Hartford Seminary, he served as an Instructional Designer at the University of Hartford, and then he served as Director of Instructional Design at Hebrew High School of New England and the Sigel Hebrew Academy.

Dr. Clark’s academic research has focused on the process through which 18th century Protestant groups split off from each other, creating oppositional identities and cultures. Named “Best Dissertation” by the Wesleyan Theological Society, his thesis highlights the crucial role that women played in the chaotic rise of the Methodist movement. His ongoing learning and research focuses on the current flowering of Christianity in the Global South.

Dr. Clark is the father of boy-girl twins, and he has been married more than half of his life to his wife, Amy, who is originally from Peru. He loves singing and songwriting, and he is a founding member of Hartford City Church, a new religious community in the South End.
