Remembering One Who Shaped the Academy

It is with great sadness we share that beloved Academy faculty member and friend, Bob Mulholland passed away after a two-year battle with cancer. Bob taught at the very first session of the first Two-Year Academy for Spiritual Formation in 1983.

Stephen Bryant, a participant in Academy #1 who later became the Publisher and World Editor of The Upper Room says, “I remember him well from that first Academy session, the first course, on The Role of Scripture in Spiritual Formation. Over the years, that course—and Bob’s way of talking about scripture—became foundational to the Academy experience and the work of The Upper Room.”

    I remember Dr. Mulholland while attending seminary at Asbury. He was a great person and patient teacher.
