Allison Bishop

Administrative Director

I am from Cleveland, Ohio. I completed my undergraduate degree in history from Ohio University. I am a Literacy AmeriCorps alumnus and served two years in the AmeriCorps with Project READ in Dayton, Ohio.  I most recently worked as the Outreach Coordinator for accessABILITY, Center for Independent Living, a disability advocacy organization in Indianapolis.

Moving around the Midwest for the last decade, I have explored many different faith traditions. I grew up Catholic and have been a part of many Unitarian Universalist churches, as well as a Quaker Friends congregation. I also have deep connections within the Jewish community here and in Ohio. I currently identify with Pagan beliefs and enjoy that there is a thriving Pagan community here in Indianapolis. We must respect all faith traditions and acknowledge each other.  I appreciate that the CIC provides a space for all faith traditions to come together in fellowship.

I have lived with my spouse in Indianapolis for three years. I enjoy cooking, traveling, and singing.

Believe in your heart that you’re meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles. -ROY T. BENNETT, The Light in the Heart
