Diana Davies

Board Member

“Meadville Lombard education gave me much greater, deeper understanding of the importance of taking time to build relationships, and the importance of process, as much as or more important than the outcome.”

Rev. Diana Davies graduated from Meadville Lombard's Master of Divinity program in 2017. On April 29, 2018, she was called to be the settled minister at the First Unitarian Church of Oklahoma City, OK.

Rev Davies holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of Rochester with language majors in Russian and Spanish. She served as Director of International Programs at the University of Iowa from 2000-2008, and as Vice Provost for International Initiatives at Princeton University from 2008-2014 before entering Meadville Lombard.

She is married to Jim Reilly and looks forward to moving from Baltimore to Oklahoma City.

What did MLTS education gave you as a tool to take your ministry where you want it to go?

“Meadville Lombard education helped me take what I had learned from my former career that I could apply in a very specific cross-cultural situation and extend it to certainly how I would be in my ministry at congregations, but more in general in my life. Much greater, deeper understanding of the importance of taking time to build relationships, and the importance of process, as much as or more important than the outcome.”
