The 2018 United Methodist Women’s Assembly is coming May 18th – 20th, in Columbus, OH. We are so excited that one of our very own pastors, The Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner (South District), has been selected to be one of four keynote speakers. We look forward Rev. Bonner representing the Desert Southwest Conference.
Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner is the Director of the Wesley Foundation of Tucson, serving the University of Arizona. Previously, she served as the Founder and Curator of The Shout, a spoken-word poetry collective based in Houston, Texas. In 2016, she was recognized 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 by WomenPreach!, Inc. 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 has produced two short film series, “The Impact of Sandra Bland” and “Facing Christmas”, as well as a documentary released in 2017, “Awaken the Voice.” An avid hiker, Hannah can be found most evenings admiring a saguaro cactuses along one of Tucson’s many trails.
