Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner

Director

Hannah did her undergraduate work in Psychology and Gender Studies at Furman University, and received her Masters from Duke University Divinity School in 2008. Ordained in 2012, she served as a senior pastor in the Mid-Atlantic region, before entering extension ministry where she has served at both a Jurisdictional and local level. In 2016, she was recognized nationally as one of the “16 Faith Leaders to Watch in 2016,” inducted as an honorary member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., and given the Prathia Hall Social Justice Award. Her first curriculum, published by Abingdon Press in 2016, is entitled “The Shout: Finding the Prophetic Voice in Unexpected Places.” Dedicated to amplifying the voices of young women, she produced a documentary, “Awaken the Voice,” to ensure that the young women she worked with in pursuing justice for Sandra Bland would be remembered. An avid hiker, Hannah can be found most evenings admiring a saguaro cactus along one of Tucson’s many trails.
