Who We Are





Who We Are




The Boston Fellows program equips emerging leaders to serve Christ and neighbor in the working world.

We are passionate about workplace excellence, about the well-being of Greater Boston, and about Christ-like living. The Boston Fellows is a coalition of Boston churches: Church of the Cross (Boston), Christ the King (Cambridge), Grace Chapel and also partners with the Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics at Gordon Conwell Theological Theological Seminary. Boston Fellows is a service program of the Anglican Diocese of New England.


Founder and Director Kelly Madden leads the program, and facilitates its academic and spiritual dimensions in partnership with the Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics in the Workplace at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where he has taught as adjunct faculty member.

Prior to founding the Fellows program, Kelly was Director of Graduate Studies at the International Leadership Foundation. He taught Social Ethics and Personal Leadership Development and deepened the academic standards of the International Leadership University's six graduate schools in Africa. Working under African directors, he helped build political and community leaders with the integrity necessary to spearhead continental transformation. Before that he lived and worked in French-speaking Africa for 13 years, first as a chaplain to university students, then overseeing chaplaincy programs in 15 countries.  He has worked in 45 countries on five continents. 

Kelly has a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell and a PhD in Political Theory from the University of York, England. He is the husband of Heather, the father of two adult children, Alex and Kathryn, and an ordained Anglican clergyman. He is far too serious about fly-fishing, live jazz, and the ukulele.
