[Episcopal News Service] Nashotah House Theological Seminary honored four alumni at an awards banquet held in May, including the Rev. E. Mark Stevenson, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries.
Stevenson, a 2000 Nashotah House graduate, received the Bishop McKim Award, “presented to an individual who has demonstrated distinguished leadership in international service.” He was named EMM’s director in May 2016. Before that, he served as the Episcopal Church domestic poverty missioner, responsible for encouraging poverty ministry efforts aimed at systemic change and overseeing Jubilee Ministries, with nearly 700 ministries that focus on the economically impoverished.
Other alumni receiving awards from Nashotah House were Daniel Aleshire, executive director of the Association of Theological Schools; the Very Rev. Robert Nelson Smith, president and CEO of St. Frances Community Services, and the Rev. Martha Bradley, retired deacon of the mass in Springfield, Illinois.
Nashotah House, located in Nashotah, Wisconsin, is celebrating its 175th year. This week, it is hosting a conference, “Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Reconciliation and Renewal.”
