Rev. Sara Wilcox serves as a local church pastor in Asheville, NC.  With a heart for the new things breaking forth in the church, she understands the complex work we are called to as we bring forth the best of what we have been and help make possible that which has not yet even been imagined.  Before her call to ministry she imagined she would be a college professor and studied political science at the University of Wisconsin.  She discerned her call to ministry during that time and shifted gears toward her theological education.  Sara received her M.Div. from Chicago Theological Seminary where she was challenged to ask new questions and look further than what is before us for the answers. She has served as a trauma chaplain and worked on behalf of men in the criminal justice system advocating for alternative sentences to incarceration. During those years, she helped birth Land of the Sky United Church of Christ where she spends a lot of time with amazing people living justly, loving abundantly and walking humbly. In her work at CPR, she serves as a coach, consultant and online educator to those hoping to do a new thing in the church.  Her primary focus is church planting and church restarts.
