Leaders in the Academy Spotlight on Neichelle Guidry 2011-2012 Doctoral Fellow & 2006 Undergraduate Fellow

“I want to articulate the relationship between a transitioning congregation's identity and its liturgy.”

Neichelle R. Guidry Jones has always felt a calling to contribute to the conversation about the ways people reach in – and reach out – to connect to the divine in their daily lives. Since childhood, she has sought to understand the worth and role of the Holy Spirit as it is manifested in the corporate worship and private lives of Christians. As a theology student, she has witnessed an underrepresentation of women in religious study. In her role as leader and teacher, Neichelle strives to provide a model for women seeking to have a conversation with God.
