The John Wesley Fellows Meeting at Candler—- The Senior Fellows

posted by Ben Witherington

The John Wesley Fellowship began in 1977, with Steve Harper and yours truly being two of the first John Wesley Fellows chosen.  I have told the story of Ed Robb and AFTE  this past Fall on the blog so I will not repeat it.   Here are some of the senior fellows attending the meeting.

In the picture above you see Joel Lemon on he right— a professor of OT at Candler who was a gracious host for this meeting and on the left is Warren Smith professor of patristics at Duke.

Steve Moore on the right has helped run our meetings of late. He is the CEO of a massive charitable trust called the Murdoch trust.  With him are J.D. Walt, a guest and current chaplain and VP for community life at Asbury, and David Thomas a Denman Fellow working on his doctorate at Bristol.

Here we have Tom Albin, the dean of the Upper Room, and on the right another currently funded Denman Fellow, Brian Yeich.

Here are several senior fellows—- Steve Rankin at SMU/Perkins school of theology.  Behind him going clockwise are Doug Strong the Dean at Seattle Pacific University, Mike Walker an AFTE trustree,  Jayson Byassee at Duke, and on the right front Ted Campbell a church history professor at Perkins.

Finally, we have here Michael Christensen of Drew, Joy Moore from Duke, and Kim Resiman completing her PhD at Durham University and a currently funded fellow.

I was happy to see the words “Denman Fellow” a few times in your post. It brought back warm memories.
Many years ago Harry Denman visited my very small hometown in Kansas on two separate occasions, both times for a few days. Although I was not yet a believer and could not be mistaken for one, he made a positive impact on me. I recognized that he was a unique individual. He took time to address me personally and made time for many young people to talk with him. He was very accessible. He was even allowed to speak in the high school auditorium and address all the students from elementary to high school age. Many townspeople of different affiliations attended. How the times have changed!
I still fondly recall Harry Denman and his visit to my home town.
