Jan Resseger serves as Minister for Public Education and Witness in the United Church of Christ Justice and Witness Ministries. The UCC is the only mainline Protestant denomination with a staff portfolio in public education justice in the tradition of the UCC’s Congregationalist forebears who were instrumental in establishing universal, compulsory education in this country, and in the tradition of the American Missionary Association that founded schools across the South During and after the Civil War as the path to full citizenship for freed slaves. Jan staffs a denomination-wide public education task force whose members have engaged in immersion discernment visits to public schools in Philadelphia, Cleveland, Phoenix, Portland, Oregon, and rural North Carolina. This group has created resources highlighting the widespread school finance crisis in all these places and raising concerns about how the church can best advocate for schools that welcome children from all races and all cultures.
