She has fully embraced the digital age with leading congregations to creatively worship on Zoom, live-stream and in person. In ministry, Pastor Jane is guided by these words: Do justice. Be kind. Forgive yourself and others. Welcome everybody. Pray, and invite God into the messiness of life. Laugh often, and be vulnerable and authentic. Preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, even (and especially) when it is hard to hear. Courageously live God’s love in the world! Learn more about Pastor Jane.
