Tim Seitz-Brown

Tim Seitz-Brown is husband to Ann, and father of three adult children: CJ, MaryBeth, and Jeremy. An Evangelical Lutheran Church in America pastor since 1987, he has served congregations in Easton, Ephrata, Thomasville and Biglerville in Pennsylvania. As an ELCA Global Mission volunteer, he has also taught Bible Knowledge at a high school in Tanzania. Before becoming a pastor, Tim worked as a fish farmer in Jamaica through the US Peace Corps.

Currently, he is active as a faith leader in the Pennsylvania Poor Peoples Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and March on Harrisburg (a nonpartisan, anti-corruption advocacy nonprofit). He is a member synod council of the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the ELCA and its Racial Justice Task Force.

Tim’s primary introduction to René Girard’s mimetic theory came through James Alison’s “Forgiving Victim” course, Michael Hardin’s “Jesus Driven Life” DVD series, and Brian McLaren’s book “Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha, and Mohammed Cross the Road?: Christian Identity in a Multi-Faith World”. He comes to “Theology and Peace” with a loyal love for reggae music, biblical storytelling, Desmond Tutu’s Ubuntu theology, and sports teams with the first name “Washington”.
