Khadijah Matin

Rev. Dr. Khadijah Matin

Rev. Dr. Khadijah Matin has established a solid record of commitment to education and faith-based organizations, serving in multiple leadership and organization development roles as training manager, national board member and ongoing consultant. Building upon her interests in her family history and social justice work, Khadijah conducts extensive research in regards to the role family history plays in shaping identity and community. Current projects include historical work based on her family history; creating models for social workers to include family history and storytelling as healing methods in creating stronger personal awareness and family dynamics, and an interfaith workbook for active engagement in one’s faith and sacred readings. Further experience in nonprofit governance and administration is demonstrated through her participation as a member of the Afro-American Historical & Genealogical Society; and recently the Association of Muslim Chaplains. Additionally, in recognition of her works in intercultural dialogue and civic engagement she was appointed as an Ariane de Rothschild Fellow, and developed social entrepreneurial initiatives models for faith leaders. Khadijah has an MS in education from Fordham University. She was ordained an Interfaith Minister at One Spirit in 2006 and completed the ISC Program in 2010. She earned her D.Min. from New York Theological Seminary in 2012, in Multi-faith ministry. Always inspired by her three adult children, Khadijah is called by some as a “woman who walks through walls” and sees her works as her calling and a continuation of her family’s traditions in the ministry, education, and health, fulfilling the civil rights and social justice dreams of her ancestors.
