Amy L. Kardash named president of the In Trust Center for Theological Schools

Kardash joined the In Trust Center with a mandate to build the Governance Mentor program, and she did so by introducing new assessment tools and cultivating a large and diverse team of Governance Mentors to serve the In Trust Center’s member schools.

In 2012, with the support of Lilly Endowment Inc., the In Trust Center expanded its mission to focus more broadly on resourcing theological schools. Services like webinars and the quarterly In Trust magazine continued, but the Center also unveiled a significant new program, Resource Consulting, which helps theological schools to identify their needs, points them to external resources that complement and enhance their existing assets, and advises leaders as they transform their schools in the ways that they have identified. Working collaboratively with the In Trust Center’s board, staff, and peers at other organizations, Kardash developed the program, launched it, created a database of resources, and built a team of Resource Consultants.

The daughter and granddaughter of Presbyterian elders, Kardash was raised in the Presbyterian church, and sixteen years ago, after a period of discernment, she joined the Catholic church. With her husband, Eric, and their two teenage children, Kardash is a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Wilmington, Delaware, where she serves as the executive officer of the pastoral council. She has also served as executive officer of her parish’s Home and School Association and was a member of the board of the Lutheran school that her children attended.

Kardash holds both a bachelor of science in marketing and management and a master’s in business administration from the University of Delaware.
