Newly Re-elected
Congregation Council Member
Kelley Madden

I have been a member of Incarnate Word since 1983. I have served three years on council, two of those years as council president. As chair of the Stewardship team, I am passionate about broadening the way people think about Stewardship in the context of God’s mission at Incarnate Word and beyond.

I am the Director of Evaluations at Brockport Research Institute after a long career as a biomedical researcher at University of Rochester Medical Center. I look forward to continuing to serving on council and discerning Incarnate Word’s role in the community, the region, and the world.
