Samantha Gilmore

Assistant Professor of Homiletics

Faculty Biography

Samantha is the Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Wartburg Theological Seminary. She previously taught homiletics at the General Theological Seminary (New York, NY) and speech communication in ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary (Princeton, NJ). She holds a Ph.D. in Practical Theology focusing on Homiletics, an M.Div., and an M.A. in Christian Education focusing on Spirituality and Missional formation from Princeton Theological Seminary.

As a Designated Linklater Teacher (a rigorous certification in an internationally recognized embodied voice method), Samantha taught voice and speech at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, and the Tom Todoroff Studio (New York, NY). She is developing fruitful relationships between theater and preaching in order to help preachers find their voices for embodied proclamation that corresponds to the freedom and abundance of the gospel.

In her spare time, Samantha enjoys the sounds and smells of rain, running, cooking and eating new (vegan) recipes, scouting out the best coffee shops in town, and taking lazy walks with her husband Lance and their dog Driscoll.
