Shameika Black

Student Chaplain Ambassador

I started at Palmer in Spring 2021 and am completing my first year as a full-time, joint MDiv/MBA student. I believe the Lord is calling me to support the holistic formation of Christian leaders in a variety of capacities. My talent and passion is bringing out the best in people, organizations, and places in ways that match their individual needs.

As the Student Chaplain Ambassador, I support the spiritual needs of the student body by cultivating a life of prayer, worship, and community. “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  John 13:34-25

Outside of Palmer, I serve and worship at Antioch Christian Fellowship in West Philadelphia. I am a self-taught photographer and work with a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion startup that focuses on antiracist training.
