My name is Rick Sullivan, I am a recent graduate of the Master of Divinity program at Duke University Divinity School. Starting in August, I will be working with the American University Methodist Community as the Associate for Community Engagement. I received this opportunity through the Global Missions Fellow US-2 Track of Generation Transformation, which is a program of The United Methodist Church‘s General Board of Global Ministries.
I grew up in Newark, DE, and went to the University of Delaware (UD). At UD, I studied Italian, Chinese (Mandarin), Arabic, and Latin, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Languages and Literatures: Three Language Program with a minor in Ancient Greek and Roman Studies.
While I was at UD, I spent my free time with the Wesley Foundation at UD. I worked as a student intern, in addition to serving on the Student Officer Board as the Local Missions Chair and Vice President.
Part of the program at Duke is to participate in field education, and I completed several internships. I served as the Duke Summer intern at Faith UMC in Rural Hall, NC; Clinical Pastoral Education Intern at Christiana Health Care Systems in Newark, DE; Duke Intern at Raleigh Wesley Foundation in Raleigh, NC; and Duke Student Pastor at Mount Olivet UMC in Manteo, NC.
