Administrative Coordinator - Sara Mannen
My name is Sara Mannen, and I recently graduated from Multnomah's MA in Theological Studies program (MATS). This Fall, I start pursuing my Ph.D. in Systematic Theology at the University of Aberdeen. I am excited to support and work for the Institute of Cultural Engagement: New Wine, New Wineskins while I am working towards my Ph.D. My time is spent between the many loves in my life—theology, my daughters, husband, and teaching. As a theologian, I am passionate about patristics, contemporary trinitarian theology, how culture and theology intersect, and theological methodology. One of my goals is to encourage more women to view themselves as theologians. New Wine, New Wineskins provides me with a unique community of other theologians with whom I can reflect on theology, culture, and life. New Wine, New Wineskins' greatest gift is the opportunity to write and continually build relationships within the Christian and Buddhist community. We don't just talk and theorize about theology at New Wine, we are given the privilege to put our feet to the ground and experience the intersection of theology and culture in our own lives.
ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR - LYNNETTE BOYER
As Administrative Coordinator for The Institute of Cultural Engagement: New Wine, New Wineskins, Lynnette Boyer desires to be a voice for grace and truth in a world of increasing cultural divisions. Her passion is to live out the symbiotic interplay of biblically faithful theological reflection and transformative participation in the love of the Trinitarian God. She expresses this in practical ways through involvement with community mental health and suicide prevention efforts and advocacy for the oppressed and underserved. She has a B.A. from Azusa Pacific University and an M.A.T.S with a concentration in Historical Theology from Multnomah Biblical Seminary. Lynnette lives in Alaska with her husband, Eric, and their three sons, where she enjoys outdoor activities, food fermentation, and assorted learning opportunities.
