Carole Hoke is a graduate of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, earning a Master of Theological Studies degree in Pastoral Care and Counseling. Rev. Hoke, ordained in the United Church of Christ, has 20-plus years of experience in the realm of religious study, serving as pastor, workshop facilitator across religious traditions, guide and listener. She firmly believes all of us have a better chance of success in the world when we have a solid background and more complete understanding of multiple religious traditions and how they influence the world around us.

She enjoys teaching online, recognizing the demands of time constraints and the organization it takes to keep up with the lessons and to provide feedback for each student. Creating a class where students have opportunities to demonstrate and articulate their ideas – one that is safe and encouraging, she feels is the pathway toward success.

Rev. Hoke currently serves as the President of the Central Illinois Affiliate of The Interfaith Alliance.
