Rev. Saeed Richardson

Rev. Saeed Richardson is the IT Director of American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS), with more than 20 years of managing and supporting IT systems and infrastructures—from large scale multi-facility academic medical centers to nonprofit, grassroots organizations.

A renaissance man of sorts, Rev. Richardson is an ordained clergyperson, pastor of 22 years, a former correctional facility chaplain, community organizer and policy advocate, and has worked as a lobbyist, fighting for police reform, racism and opportunities for returning citizens. He is also a self-described Information Technology junkie and software developer.

Rev. Richardson was most recently Programs and Operations officer for the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, for which he managed an annual inventory of more than 40 programs, projects and initiatives within the organization’s portfolio, in addition to the technical, digital resources and infrastructure to support that work.

He earned the Master of Divinity as well as a master’s degree in Social Work, Policy and Practice (AM), both at the University of Chicago.
