He then moved from law to gospel. He came to Yale Divinity School to study ethics and was caught up in scripture studies, chapel, and the school's community life.
After earning his M.Div., Latimer remained at Yale for two years as a research fellow in biblical Hebrew. He then was certified for lay ministry by the interdenominational Interim Ministry Network and served in a number of U.C. C. Churches as a pastoral assistant. He was ordained this year in the United Church of Christ, called as an associate minister to the Shalom UCC in New Haven.
He is married to Kate Latimer '85 M.Div., '98 S.T.M.., a UCC minister. They share a fondness for the divinity school, for church community, and for the honesty and poetic truth of scripture's many voices.
