Hannah Quick is the organizing pastor and executive director of Okra Abbey, located in the Pigeon Town neighborhood of New Orleans. A California native, Hannah received her M.Div. from Princeton Seminary.  She served as pastoral associate for Beacon Church, a new church focused on neighborhood engagement in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia before moving south.  Okra Abbey not only runs a community garden for the benefit of their low-income neighbors but also seeks to be a sacred place where all find rest, refuge, spiritual recreation, and community.
Heather Mustain is associate pastor at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas. She earned a sociology undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, a M.S.W. from Baylor University, and an M.Div. from Truett Seminary.  Heather has led Wilshire’s missions and advocacy work since 2013, when she joined the staff as minister of missions. Her responsibilities include engaging congregants in missions experiences while also equipping the church to be advocates on issues of justice. As associate pastor, Heather also oversees congregational life, pastoral care and communications.

Karen Hill has been pastor at First Presbyterian, Cottage Grove, OR since 2015.  She earned a B.A. from Bethel College in St. Paul, MN, and an M.Div. from San Francisco Theological Seminary. Ordained in 2003 by the Presbytery of San Gabriel in southern California, she served churches in Ft. Wayne, IN, and Albuquerque, NM, before coming to Cottage Grove.  Karen’s congregation joined with a number of community partners to build the Cottage Village Co-Op, a tiny home development. Karen will be joined by Bruce Kelsh, a lay leader in the congregation who has played a key role in building the collaboration.
