My work explores the zones where Christian endurance, the African American church experience, and theological ethics intersect.

I direct the Edmiston Center for the Study of the Bible and Ethnicity, where we study Christian endurance on the margins of today’s societies.

I’m currently a PhD candidate in Church History at Oxford Center for Mission Studies in Oxford, England. I hold a Master of Art in Religion (Theological) from Westminster Theological Seminary, and a Master of Fine Art from the Yale School of Drama.

I’ve been an Ambassador and vocal advocate for International Christian Response.

I love watching my passport fill up as I travel with my husband, theological anthropologist Dr. Carl F. Ellis, Jr. We have four amazing, God-given children, one delightful grand-daughter, and a life of adventure.
