The Boston Fellows program equips emerging leaders to serve Christ and neighbor in the working world.
Boston Fellows is a service program of the Anglican Diocese of New England. We are passionate about workplace excellence, about the well-being of Greater Boston, and about Christ-like living. The program is a collaboration of Boston churches: Christ the King (Cambridge), Church of the Cross (Boston), Grace Chapel, Highrock Church, and Park Street Church. It partners also with the La Vida Center for Outdoor Education and Leadership at Gordon College and the Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
Prior to founding the Boston Fellows, Executive Director Kelly Madden 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 in political and community leaders 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 Theological Seminary 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.
