Dr. Pamela Caudill Ovwigho
A desire to turn data into information that answers important questions and solves vexing problems fuels Dr. Ovwigho's professional life.
With a B.A. in Psychology (Penn State University) and a Ph.D. in Human Services Psychology (University of Maryland), Pam has used her research, measurement, and analytic skills to tackle a wide variety of issues from public welfare policy to family violence to spiritual growth.
Serving as a research director at the University of Maryland for 15 years, Pam provided state and local policymakers with real data on topics such as whether children whose families leave welfare have a higher risk of abuse. She has been instrumental in providing a state network of domestic violence service providers with key information about who their nationally-recognized Lethality Assessment Program is reaching. A frequent conference speaker, Pam has authored dozens of academic journal articles and white papers.
Several years ago the Lord answered Pam's prayers to use her skills more directly in ministry by leading her to the Center for Bible Engagement (CBE). As CBE's Executive Director, Pam conducts studies on scripture engagement, spiritual growth, and church health. She also assists with developing products to help people grow in a relationship with Jesus. Pam lives in Lincoln, Nebraska with her husband, Ramsome, their four children, and an ever-growing collection of pets.
