Jerry DeWitt: Learning from Religious Communities

We’re delighted to host Jerry DeWitt, the former Executive Director of Recovering From Religion, for an exclusive talk focusing on what growing Humanist communities can learn from religious communities around the country. Read a feature on Jerry in New York Times Magazine:;

Jerry DeWitt became a non-believer after more than twenty-five years of Pentecostal ministry in his home state of Louisiana. His ministry experience begin at the early age of seventeen and included evangelizing across the United States and being the assistant pastor of two United Pentecostal churches as well as one Apostolic church.

Jerry also holds the distinction of being the first graduate of The Clergy Project, a private, invitation-only “safe house” community of current and former ministers who no longer hold the supernatural beliefs of their religious traditions, and the Executive Director of Recovering From Religion from 2011-2012.
