About Me

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.

After I graduated from UD, I moved to Durham, NC, and went to Duke Divinity School. At Duke, I earned a Master of Divinity, with a Certificate in Theology, Medicine, and Culture.

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.
