Kate Ott, Associate Professor.

Using Tech to Make Spiritual Connections

“How do you connect military chaplains with personnel who are disconnected to religion?

Such is the mission facing Drew Theological School Associate Professor Kate Ott, who’s part of a trio that will teach more than 1,000 Naval, Marine and Coast Guard chaplains how to deliver “meaningful ministry” to millennial personnel who are unaffiliated with religion (“nones”) or antagonistic toward it (“dones”).

The training was developed by the trio through FaithTrust Institute, a non-profit group that promotes multi-faith training and education. The curriculum will focus heavily on using technology and social media to engage millennials.” Read more at Drew Stories.
