We welcomed our Intentional Interim Minister
Rev. Dr. Janet Adair Hansen
 November 1, 2019

Rev. Hansen received 
her BA in Religious studies from the University of California, her Master of Divinity degree from Duke and her Doctorate of Ministry with spiritual emphasis from the San Francisco Theological Seminary. She was ordained at the Santa Fe Presbytery in 1982, and is fully credentialed in intentional interim ministry through Princeton Seminary. 

Rev. Hansen held pastoral appointments in Texas, New Mexico, and Wyoming and Texas, before moving to New York as the full time settled  pastor of the Christ Community Church in Cortland. She also served as a coordinator for a denominational eco-justice conference in South Carolina, a nursing home chaplain in Wyoming, and campus minister in NM.  After nearly 18 years in Cortland, she retired in 2018. She spent a year for rest and travel, most recently working at Yellowstone National Park. Then she felt that God was calling her to do intentional interim work.

Rev. Hansen has depth of life long experiences and was described by references and parishioners as being 
passionate about social justice issues, intelligent, articulate, good humored, balanced, energetic, creative, a steward of nature and unifying.
