Author, speaker, and sidewalk theolgian, Cheri Cowell is passionate about discipleship and challenging the body of Christ to holiness of heart and life. As the author of Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life (Beacon Hill, 2007) and over 300 articles, Cheri’s love of story and the Holy Word shines through in her writing and teaching.
In 2009 Cheri was one of six Christian journalists chosen to tour the Holy Land as a guest of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, a blessing that only deepened her love of the parables Jesus told. In 2011 she earned a Masters in Theological Studies degree from Asbury Seminary, where Cheri studied under Dr. Brian Russell, who apprenticed under Dr. Robert A. Traina. It is his Inductive Bible Study method combined with Dr. Russell’s own Missional Hearmenuetics that has given Cheri a newfound joy in studying the Bible and its Grand Narrative.
From her twenty-years in both professional and lay Christian ministry, Cheri has wrestled with the realities of living a Kingdom life. Through writing and speaking she shares this sidewalk-tested faith to encourage, challenge, and equip the body of Christ to live Story-shaped lives. She and her husband, Randy, both native Floridians, currently live in Orlando, Florida.
