Nick Peterson is the Assistant Professor of Homiletics and Worship at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, IN. He also serves as the Assistant Director of their ground-breaking Ph.D. Program in African American Preaching and Sacred Rhetoric. He holds a Ph.D. in Practical Theology from the Graduate Division of Religion at Emory University. His research sits at the intersection of Critical Black Study and Black Theology, where he explores how Black Faith contends with and within an antiblack world. Subsequently, he imagines and re-imagines black preaching and worship as a spiritual material witness to an intramural black fidelity and God’s presence. He calls these exceptional intramural care practices, black-on-black care. Nick is an ordained Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church and has served broadly in the local church as assistant pastor, pastor, minister of music, and youth minister. Nick has demonstrated commitment to ecumenism and has held positions in Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Mennonite, UCC, and UMC contexts.
