Martha Spong is an author, a pastor, and a clergy coach. Her latest book, Denial is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith), coauthored with Rachel G. Hackenberg, explores what happens when you feel you have failed at faith, or the faith you have been taught has failed you, telling stories about illness, abuse, divorce, and coming out in conversation with scripture.
Martha is the Executive Director of RevGalBlogPals, an ecumenical ministry providing support and resources to clergywomen around the world and across and beyond denominations, and the editor of There’s a Woman in the Pulpit, a collection of essays more than fifty clergywomen.
Martha has a coaching practice focused on empowering clergywomen to meet their goals in leadership and life. She lives with her family in South Central Pennsylvania.
