About our Speaker, The Rev. Carrie Schofield-Broadbent
The Rev. Carrie Schofield-Broadbent is an Episcopal priest serving as the Canon to the Ordinary for Transition and Church Development on the Bishop’s executive staff in the Diocese of Central New York. Carrie received a Bachelor’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies with an emphasis in interpersonal and intragroup conflict resolution. She worked for several years before going to seminary as a conflict resolution trainer and consultant, mostly working in educational settings. In her work in the church, she has found that she hasn’t had to put those skills on the shelf. Carrie consults with clergy, lay leaders, vestries and congregations who are experiencing conflict.
Building on many years in parish ministry, Carrie also works with clergy and congregations in times of transition, and collaborates with the communities of faith to cultivate and grow dynamic, healthy, invitational congregations and ministries that are relevant to their contexts and deeply rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Carrie is a trainer with the College for Congregational Development and has studied with the Alban Institute, the Lombard Mennonite Peace Center, Fierce Conversations, the Interim Ministry Network, and Susan Beaumont and Associates.
