Name: Hannah Conroy
Age: 28
Personality Type: INFJ
Theological Affiliation: ARP/PCA

I’m a Philippines-raised American currently living in the southern US as I deal with health issues. I was born into a PCA family, am a member at an ARP Church, and currently listen to Reverend Elbert McGowan’s sermons from Redeemer PCA in Mississippi. I’m in a period of personal upheaval and it has been difficult in many ways; spiritually, my faith is jagged, but what is there is real. In other words, there are big areas of woundedness & questioning along with an awareness of Christ’s hold of me. My hobbies/interests/passions include: healthy eating, YouTube, walks in nature, yoga, humor, thinking through complex current issues, justice, and mental health.

I love Jesus. I’m married to the most beautiful woman in the world. With a great mixture of pain and pride, I live in Arkansas.

I am also serving at the Pastor at Mars Hill Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Pottsville, Arkansas.
