Jacqueline Glass, a resident of Jersey City, New Jersey, is founder of At the Well Conferences, Inc. The 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization began as a means to empower women, particularly women of color, who oftentimes are on the bottom of the socio-economic ladder. Her impetus for creating the organization was personal. Workplace challenges for women prompted her to direct energies toward planning conferences that provide empowerment in the areas of finance, health, and spirituality.
Since 2009, she has organized five successful At the Well empowerment events for minority teen girls and women. They include leadership conferences held at Union Theological Seminary in New York, NY and more recently At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Conference and At the Well Young Women’s Leadership Academy at Princeton University in Princeton, NJ.
A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, she received her Master of Divinity degree in 2003. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from Lehman College in 2000 where she graduated with the distinction of Magna Cum Laude. A licensed minister, she served as Adjunct Professor in Old Testament at the College of New Rochelle in the Bronx from 2004 to 2005. She currently serves as Associate Minister at Elmwood Presbyterian Church, Newark, NJ. A publishing professional, she worked as a freelance marketing consultant and editor for Judson Press, a 185 year-old Christian publisher, for several years. She served as the Editor for two books: Those Preaching Women, Volume 4 (Judson Press: 2003) and Fire in the Well by Henry and Ella Mitchell (Judson Press: 2002).
Representative of her diverse background, Ms. Glass is currently a court reporter for the New York Supreme Civil Court proceedings.
