Hannah Shultz has resigned from her position on the Church of the Brethren staff as coordinator of short‐term service with Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS), effective Jan. 27. She has accepted a position with Georgia Interfaith Power and Light, an organization that engages communities of faith in stewardship of Creation as a response to climate change and environmental concerns.
During her year-and-a-half with BVS, since Aug. 5, 2019, Shultz helped shift the former Workcamp Ministry online for the summer of 2020, in response to the pandemic, and then helped recreate the ministry as Faith Outreach Expeditions or FaithX. She has supervised BVS volunteer assistant coordinators and worked with them in designing a variety of in-person, hybrid, and online options for short-term service events in summer 2021.
In previous work for the church, she was assistant workcamp coordinator for the 2015 season as a BVS volunteer. She holds a master of divinity from Emory University, Candler School of Theology, and a degree from Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pa.
