Who We Are

We’re led collaboratively by a growing team of diverse people.

Kerry Scarlett is an ordained deacon, passionate about collaboratively and creatively addressing social injustice. Born and raised in Northern Ireland, she loves dancing (less in the clubs these days than to the radio in the kitchen), crafting (badly but with enthusiasm), and walking her rescue greyhound, Phil.

Farai Mapamula is Methodist minister in Birmingham. She enjoys poetry, afro jazz and blues, long walks in the woods, and experimenting with food from all over the world. She’s excited about inclusive church because that’s what she hopes we all want actually want to achieve: to be disciples of Christ who carry the message of love, hope, and grace to all people and all creation.

Trey Hall is a marathon runner, minister, American ex-pat, and failed improv comedy student. He lives in Birmingham with his husband, Jonathan, and their rescue Weimaraner, Jake.

Bahadir Celiktemur teaches politics to undergraduate students and spends a lot of time thinking about the Christian faith in the public square. He loves spending time outdoors, cooking, and putting the world to rights at the dinner table.
