Samuel Ewell

SAMUEL EWELL served in Brazil as a missionary from 2003 to 2010 with his wife Rosalee and their three children James, Isabella, and Katharine. Since 2010 the Ewells have resided in Birmingham, UK, where Sam has recently completed his PhD on Ivan Illich and Christian witness (Faith Seeking Conviviality, publication forthcoming with Wipf and Stock). As an ordained minister and member of Companions for Hope, a Christian collective based in Summerfield-Winson Green, Sam combines prison and community engagement, urban agriculture, and theological facilitation as a way of cultivating abundant community at the edges of inner-city Birmingham, especially among the “discarded.” Sam’s research interests include the intersection of Christian spirituality and practical theology, exploring personal, social, and ecological transformation in the midst of the “throwaway culture.”
