She is an activist, preacher, and fierce advocate for racial equality, economic justice, and LGBTQ equality. Her work has included co-founding The Middle Project, an institute that prepares ethical leaders for a more just society. She has also written three books, hosted a television program, been a frequent contributor to MSNBC, and taught at seminaries across the country.

Jacqui earned her Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary, and earned a M.Phil. and a Ph.D. in Psychology and Religion from Drew University. Ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Jacqui is the first African American and first woman to serve as senior minister in the Collegiate Church, which was founded in New York City in 1628.

Amy Grant

Amy Grant has been strumming her way through a forty-plus year adventure as a singer-songwriter, author, television host, and speaker.

Amy has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Her chart performance boasts six No. 1 hits, 10 “Top 40” Pop singles, 17 “Top 40” Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers. Grant has received 6 GRAMMY Awards, 26 Dove Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a star on the Music City Walk of Fame. Additionally, she was most recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

Stepping out from behind her guitar, Grant found herself hosting the NBC prime-time series “Three Wishes” in 2005. Two years later, Grant’s first book, Mosaic: Pieces of My Life, was published. She continues to share her stories with audiences all over the country.

Grant resides with her family in Nashville, Tennessee, and is widely known for her philanthropy and involvement in local causes and charitable organizations.
