Email Rev. Jane Anderson
Jane serves as the staff resource for Church and Ministry in the Northeast and Southeast Associations, supports the executive committees in both associations, and provides pastoral care for pastors and churches with congregations in transition and helps them transform conflict. Jane also helps churches in both associations with search and call. Prior to her call as the Associate Conference Minister for the Northeast and Southeast Associations, Jane had been in ministry in the local church for 30 years. She first served a small rural church as a licensed local pastor in the United Methodist Church. After coming to the United Church of Christ in 1988, Jane served a suburban church outside Rochester, New York, first as a licensed pastor and then as an ordained minister upon her graduation from seminary and ordination into the UCC. During her 6-year tenure in New York, she helped the congregation grow from 450 to 650 members. In 1995, Jane was called to First Congregational UCC, Appleton, a congregation of 1450 members, assuming a variety of pastoral leadership roles as the church’s program and ministry have evolved.
