Steve Newcom, Founding Director

Rev. Dr. Steven Newcom was awarded an Archibald Bush Foundation Leadership Fellowship in 2008 to research the intersection of theological education and social justice ministry. The research identified a fundamental gap within seminary education around the applied competencies of social transformation and effective public witness. Kaleo Center was launched in 2010 to address this gap with the mission of advancing social transformation as a core ministerial competency and practical theological discipline. Prior to founding Kaleo Center, Steve served the Headwaters Foundation for Justice as the Executive Director for 18 years and prior to that worked for the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches.
