Welcoming Rev. Dr. Angela Hancock

On Sunday, August 29, the Reverend Dr. Angela Dienhart Hancock will preach during the service of worship at 11:00 a.m.

The Reverend Dr. Hancock serves as associate professor of homiletics and worship at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. An ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Reverend Dr. Hancock has served as pastor to churches in Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Tennessee. She continues to preach, teach, and lead worship in a variety of settings.

Dr. Hancock earned her Ph.D. in homiletics from Princeton Theological Seminary, where she also earned her Master of Divinity, after earning a Bachelor of Music from Indiana University, Bloomington. She is the author of Karl Barth’s Emergency Homiletic, 1932-33: A Summons to Prophetic Witness at the Dawn of the Third Reich, a contextual interpretation of Swiss theologian Karl Barth’s lectures on preaching in the early 1930s, based on unpublished archival material. Her current research explores Karl Barth’s contribution to the ethics of deliberation in Christian communities and the relationship between political and theological rhetoric.

We give thanks that Rev. Dr. Hancock will proclaim God’s Word among us in August. Please join us in welcoming her as she returns to Shadyside’s pulpit. To connect remotely, visit the live worship webcast page of the church website.
