Welcome Rev. Dr. Holly Inglis! 

Holly joins us as Associate Pastor for Nurture. She has spent the last seven years serving as Church Educator at Wellshire Presbyterian Church in Denver, Colorado. Prior to that, she served for fifteen years in several churches as Director of Education Ministries in Indiana and Colorado. Her first ministry experience was as a co-pastor of Sugar Plain Friends Meeting in Indiana. Holly graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Earlham School of Religion as a Recorded Quaker Pastor in the 80’s. More recently in she earned her Doctorate of Education Ministry in 2012 from…you guessed it, Columbia Theological Seminary!

Holly has served in, and been moderator of, several Presbytery-wide committees and has been extremely active in the extra-curricular work of her local church communities. She has led many workshops at the Association of Presbyterian Christian Educators Annual Conference over the last decade, and was a keynote speaker at the 2015 conference. Of particular note is that she is a published author, penning the book “Sticky Learning: How Neuroscience Supports Teaching That’s Remembered”.

Holly has been married 37 years to her husband Mark and has three adult children: Peter, who is a sous chef in St. Augustine; Seth, who is an actor and house painter in Denver; and Leah, who is married to Ned Weakland and works for the National Park Service in Denver. Holly and Mark have a Great Pyrenees dog named Grizwold. Welcome to the Palms’ family!
