Associate Pastor: Joanna Shenk

Joanna is energized to be on the journey of transformation with First Mennonite Church of San Francisco. As an author (including, Widening the Circle: Experiments in Christian Discipleship), networker, podcast producer (the Iconocast) and facilitator, she invites others to join movements for justice and wholeness and recognize their deepest identity as beloved. She enjoys riding her bike, making popcorn on the stovetop, creating jewelry (especially with spirals) and learning as much as possible about Bay Area history.
