Katie Douglass is an Assistant Professor of Ministry at Seattle Pacific University. She is an ordained minister in the PC(USA) and served, with her husband John, at the American Protestant Church: An International Congregation, in Bonn, Germany before returning to doctoral studies. 

Since 2013, Dr. Douglass has directed The Confirmation Project, a $1.1 million grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc., that researches confirmation and equivalent practices that form disciples of Jesus Christ in five denominations (PC(USA), UMC, Episcopal, AME, and ELCA) through a national survey of youth, parents, and ministry leaders, as well as congregational visits. The findings from this research and related events are available at www.theconfirmationproject.com.
