“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor,

and some style”

Tamice Namae Spencer graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2006 with a double major Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies and Advertising. At age 20 she felt the call to vocational ministry quite strongly and hasn’t looked back. Tamice has ministered to hundreds of young adults. Tamice's students have praised her for her ability to connect with them, as well as her passion for learning, speaking, songwriting, and teaching, have inspired this website.

For six years she served on full-time staff with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and the last two years on staff as the Associate Area Director of HBCU Planting & Strategy for the Southeast Region.

Tamice specializes in matters related to ministry to Black Students, both GEN-Z & millennials. Her theological study in concentrated in the intersections of Hip-Hop, Black Religions and Black History. She excels in the field of cultural exegesis and engagement, racial reconciliation, and the Synoptic Gospels. 

 

A thought leader in her generation, Tamice has coined the term “cultural archeopology” to describe her theological work and contributions: one who excavates treasure in places no one would dare to look for God and uses what is found to provide raitonal & defense for the hope found in the gospel of Christ".

She holds a Masters of Arts in Contextual Evangelism and Leadership from Wheaton College as well as a Masters of Arts in Theology from Fuller Theological seminary. 

She is a mommy to Harlym, a Hip-Hop head, a true crime/documentary enthusiast, a book nerd, and a coffee snob.
