Reverend Jane Willan is Pastor of the Congregational Church of Grafton, Massachusetts, United Church of Christ. Her ten year career as a minister began in a small town in rural Iowa where she grew a small and struggling church into a thriving congregation. Since then she has pastored two more churches, leading each into exciting revitalization—even when the odds were against growth.
Jane has served a variety of leadership positions, all of which helped her envision a vibrant future for her churches. As Moderator of the Iowa Conference Board of Directors, United Church of Christ, and a member of the Board of Directors for Justice and Witness Ministries, a National Board for the United Church of Christ, she learned how good leadership can affect the growth of a church.
Jane has a Master’s of Science degree from Boston University, and a Master’s of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School. She lives in a 130-year-old church parsonage with her husband Don and two dogs, Magi and Moses.
