Hosts Rev. Glencie Rhedrick is joined by Rev. Madeline Sadler of the Exodus Foundation.

Dr. McClenney-Sadler completed a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance, and a Master of Divinity Dgree at Howard University in Washington, D.C. where she was an active advocate for the homeless.  She continued her education at Duke University where she earned a Ph.D in Old Testament Studies in 2001, with minors in Women’s Studies and Islamic Law.

In 1999, while completing the dissertation, she founded Exodus, a Christian faith based charity dedicated to serving formerly incarcerated African-Americans and those at risk for incarceration.  Dr.  McClenney-Sadler and the governing board spent the first four years planning and organizing activities.  The initial launch of programs occurred in 2004 with the first scholarship award and Welcome Back Celebration.

 In April of 2011, Ministry with Prisoners and Families: The Way Forward was released by Judsen Press and edited by W. Wilson Goode, Charles E. Lewis Jr., and Harold Dean Trulear.  Dr. McClenney-Sadler was one of several nationally known contributors to this groundbreaking tool for pastors and congregations.   Her chapter is entitled:  “A letter to African-American Churches Concerning the Saints Coming Home from Prison.

As a published author, frequent pulpit guest, and classroom instructor, Rev. Dr. McClenney-Sadler reminds believers that we serve a Savior “who died to exonerate and redeem people with a record, and before God, we all have a record.”
