Carol Rose Ikeler '50 B.D.
Carol Rose Ikeler credits her world-church-minded parents, the New England Student Christian Movement, while attending Mount Holyoke College, and especially the prophetic spirit of her professors at YDS for her grateful acknowledgement that she is a "child" of the World Council of Churches. She likes to recall her WCC work camper experience in Italy and Puerto Rico, and the World Mission seminars in Bossey, Greece, Italy, Cuba and, in 2005, Russia. She and her husband celebrated retirement in summer school at St. Andrew's and the Waldensium Seminary in Rome.
A Connecticut Yankee, Ikeler is a fourth-generation minister in her New England family and the first woman to be received by the Presbytery of Philadelphia (when it wasn't easy). She especially cherishes the memory of her YDS dean, Liston Pope, preaching her ordination sermon in her father's congregation in Glastonbury, CT.
Ikeler has served UCC churches in Honolulu and Garden City, NY, and a Presbyterian congregation in Philadelphia, where she helped develop an innovative inner-city cluster. She also served for twenty years on the Presbyterian national Staff in Philadelphia and later in Louisville, first as an editor of the Faith and Life Curriculum , and later as founder and director of the Family Ministries office. The latter involved her regularly at the Montreat and Ghost Ranch Conference Centers.
She is "hugely joyful" concerning her fifty-fifth YDS anniversary.
