ATLAS has one full-time onsite faculty member and dean, the Rev. Dr. Susan I. Bubbers (see her CV here). Learn more about her by viewing the 25th Ordination Anniversary PowerPoint Show which ATLAS presented for her in 2019 (click here). In the above photo, she is talking with former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey about the establishment of the ATLAS Theological Center. Susan grew up in central Florida, left that area several times for education and employment, and has returned there to serve as the founding Dean of the ATLAS Theological Center. She still enjoys the beach, NASA, Disney, and all the blessings of the Orlando area. Her spiritual journey began at a very young age with a genuine relationship with Jesus in “backyard conversations,” meaningful Lutheran upbringing, Assemblies of God discipleship in college, and then Episcopal/Anglican ordination and pastoring. Her theological education has been through non-denominational Regent University for her M.Div., Episcopal Seminary in Alexandria VA, Presbyterian RTS for Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Formation, and the London School of Theology for PhD in Theology. Her ministry experience includes serving as a youth pastor, University Chaplain, parish priest, Diaconal Institute Instructor, and Seminary Professor. She is a published author, conference speaker, academic mentor, spiritual director, and is currently helping to establish the church-plant Celebration Anglican Fellowship in the town of Celebration, FL. She has served as the Dean of ATLAS since its founding in 2012.
