Stacy Guinto-Salinas


BA, Pfeiffer University / MDiv, Duke Divinity School / PhD, Princeton Theological Seminary (Present)


United Methodist


Stacy is a Mexican immigrant raised in the southeastern United States. Upon arriving in the United States, Stacy and her family found refuge in a local immigrant church where her passion for theology began. She is interested in exploring the endurance, or faith, of undocumented immigrant women from the site of infliction—the United States-Mexico border—to the joy they find surviving and thriving in an anti- immigrant, patriarchal society. Stacy explores these questions through liberation theologies, Black and Latine studies, and decolonial theory. Stacy is also a candidate for ordination in the United Methodist Church and hopes to highlight the faith and work of immigrant women and to assist in the development and education of Latine clergy.
