He was the national director for Native American ministries, a tenured professor in systematic theology, and the president and dean of a seminary. Today he is a nationally recognized author with a dozen titles to his name, including three novels and his groundbreaking Native American theology, The Four Vision Quests of Jesus. He is the recipient of three honorary doctorates and in 2014 a building was dedicated to his name " The Charleston House of Interfaith Cooperation ," on the campus of his alma mater, Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. He is a citizen of the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma where he currently lives with his wife, Susan, a professional artist who designs all of the covers for his books.

Previously she was the Canon for Mission Vitality for the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island and a member of the chaplain team for the House of Bishops. She served as the co-chair of the Standing Commission on Mission and Evangelism (2009-2012).

A former church planter and seminary faculty member, she is the author of Radical Welcome: Embracing God, The Other and the Spirit of Transformation . A native of Kentucky, Stephanie now lives in New York City.

She graduated from Episcopal Divinity School with a Masters of Divinity; Harvard Divinity School with a Masters of Theological Studies; and Wake Forest University with a Bachelors in Religion, where she began organizing for justice and peace.
