Cameron Nations holds a degree with honors in English Literature from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and is currently pursuing an M.Div at Sewanee: The University of the South in his home state of Tennessee. He is a Postulant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church (Diocese of Springfield).
While at the University of Illinois, Cameron served as Religious Literacy Chair of Interfaith in Action, the University’s premier interfaith service organization. He had the privilege to attend the Interfaith Youth Core’s first Interfaith Leadership Institute hosted by the White House and held at Georgetown, where he learned how to implement interfaith dialogue and service into existing institutional structures of university life. It was out of this leadership institute that the idea for Faith Line Protestants was born.
At Sewanee, Cameron has spearheaded the effort to include interfaith engagement as part of the University’s mission and focus, with a primary interest in how to incorporate interfaith engagement into the training of future Episcopal clergy in the context of a denominational seminary.
Cameron joined the Episcopal Church while in college and is a member of Emmanuel Memorial Episcopal Church in downtown Champaign, IL. His writing has appeared on The Huffington Post, RELEVANT Magazine, The Washington Post’s “On Faith” blog, and elsewhere.
