Rev. Sue Nilson Kibbey

serves as Director of the Bishop Bruce Ough Innovation Center at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. Sue’s local church ministry appointments have included a variety of roles, including executive pastor of Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, Ohio—partnering with senior pastor Mike Slaughter for a decade of dramatic growth, including both local and global missional fruitfulness. Sue also served on the executive staff of the United Methodist West Ohio Conference as the creator and director of the Missional Church Consultation Initiative (MCCI)—which eventually spread across multiple states and has engaged more than 275 churches of all sizes and settings in creative revitalization for a fresh season of impact. Sue now leads the Innovation Center’s new prayer-fueled “Floodgates Collective,” which offers customized training and practical implementation guidance for congregations longing to shift from plateau or decline into vibrant, prayer-saturated, Spirit-guided steps forward.  Her deepest passion is fueling the Breakthrough Prayer Initiative, a personal and congregation-wide prayer strategy inviting God’s new hopes, dreams and possibilities for what’s next. She is an adjunct instructor at United Theological Seminary, and a student in United’s doctor of ministry program.

Sue has authored 8 books, the most recent together with Rosario Picardo: Dynamite Prayer a 28 Day Experiment @2022, Invite Resources.

Dynamite Prayer has become a certified “Amazon Bestseller,” as well as the publisher’s top-selling book; is available both in print and electronic formats; and as of September 2023 is available on the publisher’s website as a downloadable Spanish language PDF that can be printed/replicated for a congregation’s use.
