Sophia Kristina R. Agtarap
Director of Communications
Sophia Agtarap came to the Divinity School staff in 2017, having worked at the University of Washington in advising and recruitment and retention, and most recently The United Methodist Church's Communications Agency. Her graduate studies include Communication and Digital Media (University of Washington) and Theology (Seattle Pacific Seminary). A transplant from Seattle (via Southern California and Iowa), she lives with her spouse, newborn, and three dogs. She enjoys food and travel, and even more so when they are done in tandem.
Sophia is a deaconess in The United Methodist Church--a lay order whose call is to engage the world through a full-time vocation in ministries of love, justice, and service. She provides leadership for Moral Movement Tennessee, a grassroots organization building a multiracial, intergenerational, interfaith, anti-poverty, pro-justice moral movement in Tennessee, as well as The United Methodist Women.
When not in the office, you can find Sophia training groups on a variety of topics, including communications and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
