IAN MORGAN CRON is a popular and critically acclaimed author, speaker, counselor, musician, Episcopal priest (B.A., English and Romance Languages, Bowdoin; M.Div, New York Theological Seminary; M.A. Counseling, Denver Seminary); and Dove Award winning songwriter with credits that include Gungor, Laura Story, Michael W. Smith, and Matt Maher. He draws on an array of disciplines and resources—from art, music and poetry to contemplative practices; from psychology to Christian spirituality—to awaken others to what it means to be fully human people of faith and get in touch with the mystery of their own life in God. Known for his transparency, humor, and spiritual insightfulness, Ian has presented at conferences, churches, seminaries, retreats, and universities around the world. He continues to speak to churches,

universities, seminaries (most recently Yale and Fuller), at conferences such as Catalyst, the Q Conference, and corporate groups such as the Michael Hyatt Company, Dave Ramsey Corporation, and Discovery Channel on the Enneagram as a tool for personal growth and improved relationships. Ian is curator of the Conversations on Courage and Faith program at Christ Church in Greenwich, CT and sits on the Board of Visitors at Duke Divinity School. He and his wife, Anne, have three children and live in Franklin, Tennessee.

In an exquisite blending of worship, creativity and the arts, Ian Cron brings to any church, retreat or gathering a much needed healing for our time. Ian brings us toward a deeper reality of the Gospel that we desperately need that elevates our hope in Christ. Many have been impacted whereever I have asked him to lead, whether that venue be a New York Chelsea Gallery or at Fuller Seminary.

Cloaking his astute insights with disarming wit and immeasurable empathy, Ian fostered a powerful space for vulnerability, compassion, and connection. I can’t say enough good about the impact we’ve experienced from having Ian teach us how to navigate the complex waters of the enneagram to more fully appreciate the beauty of our unique strengths and understand how to better balance areas of weakness.
