Kelley Nikondeha is a practical theologian, co-director of Communities of Hope, theologian-in-residence for SheLoves Magazine, and co-founder of Amahoro Africa.

Kelley Nikondeha

Nikondeha earned a Master of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary and metes out her theology as an adoptive mother, a wife in a bi-cultural marriage, and a member of a bi-continental family. She is also captivated by "the luminous beaches of the California coast and the vibrant rhythms of Burundian drummers."

Adopted, her first book, explores the concept of adoption in Christian theology and liturgy, as well as a powerful social force for bringing reconciliation and belonging to people in the 21st century.
