Course Facilitator

Rev. Kathi McShane is Senior Pastor of Los Altos United Methodist Church, located on two campuses in the heart of Silicon Valley.  LAUMC is the largest United Methodist Church in California, and the founding congregation of The Changemaker Initiative, established in partnership with the social entrepreneurship organization Ashoka, which pairs the compassion of Jesus with the skills of innovation for the common good. 

Kathi attended seminary and entered the ministry after a first career as an attorney, specializing in business litigation.  She served for eight years as Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Pacific School of Religion, where she led a commission charged with re-thinking the strategic direction of theological education.  She believes that the leadership of religious institutions at this moment requires, most of all, the courage to take meaningful risks with the traditions we hold in our hands.
