Relating, Creating, Transforming

About

Hello!
Thanks for checking out my blog; I hope you have enjoyed it so far.

Here is a little bit about me:

headshotDECKI grew up in Indiana and Iowa before completing a Masters of Divinity [M.Div.] at Princeton Theological Seminary [NJ]. I have worked in a variety of settings, including the Presbyterian Church (USA) and United Church of Christ (UCC) in Philadelphia, Hawai’i, Mexico, and Michigan. Currently, I serve as pastor of Love in Action United Church of Christ, a progressive, Christian, LGBTQIA+ affirming and interfaith community in Hatboro, a suburb of Philadelphia. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre/Speech from Northwestern College (IA). I have worked with youth and young adult programs for 25 years regionally, nationally, and in Latin America.
I’m also a theater nerd! !I am trained as a stage actor and perform regularly with the dinner theatre company, Without a Cue Productions, LLC. I have also developed theatre arts curriculum for use in worship, youth groups, education, and group-building.

I’m committed to promoting religious pluralism and partnering with people of all faiths and those who identify as atheist or agnostic to build bridges of shared values and cooperation. I’m honored to work with the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia as a Fellow and a Consultant.
Focus areas include: University alternative spring break and summer programs that incorporate faith encounters and service-learning for students; workplace diversity programs that promote understanding in organizations, corporations, schools, and hospital settings.
I also enjoy playing basketball, strumming on the guitar, traveling, learning language, or making strange and funny faces. I currently live in Center City Philadelphia and think that vegan cheesesteaks are amazingly good.

Meanwhile, maybe I will see you sometime if I am performing in a show with the dinner theater company, Without a Cue Productions, and hopefully you’ll have a good laugh and a great experience.

Or, you may see me at a mosque, synagogue, Sikh gurdwara, church, or Buddhist community, or Hindu temple with students–relating, learning, and building bridges.

Or perhaps we’ll meet at a hospital, school, or company where I am moderating a religious diversity in the workplace program.

But then again, I may see you in a church or school or at a retreat center leading theater games and creative movement for teaching and group-building.

Either way, you can like my Facebook Page.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Peace,

Josh
