The Rev. Melanie Mullen of Richmond, Virginia, has been named the Episcopal Church director of reconciliation, justice and creation care, a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff.
In this position, Mullen leads the church’s work on domestic poverty and Jubilee Ministries, and shepherds the work of Episcopal Church staff in relation to racial reconciliation and justice, domestic poverty, stewardship of creation, and the United Thank Offering. She also partners closely with the Advisory Council on Stewardship of Creation to develop and support eco-justice sites and networks. She reports to the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, the presiding bishop’s canon for evangelism, reconciliation, and creation. “The Rev. Mullen brings a unique blend of experiences and gifts to this position,” Spellers said. “She’s a trained community organizer with a heart for building teams and leading communities to make a difference. She has a demonstrated passion for environmental justice and economic justice. She knows parishes, she knows Capitol Hill and she knows the trenches, and she’s ready to work with our already strong team to take the Episcopal Church’s engagement around reconciliation, justice and creation care even deeper.”
The director of reconciliation, justice and creation care is based in Washington, D.C. “It is an honor to be called to this the new position for the church,” Mullen said. “The work of reconciliation, justice and creation care is vital to our life together, as we further the vision of equipping the people of God to be Christ’s hands and feet on the earth.” Mullen previously served as the downtown missioner at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Richmond.
