Alison Brookins


Alison Brookins is a pastor and playwright (moonlighting as one and full-time in the other, though she’s still figuring out what the difference is). She mastered divinity at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (MDiv 2017). During seminary she guilted Ted into an internship where she wrote Discovery: A Comic Lament, a touring production exploring the Doctrine of Discovery. Alison is now pastor of Chicago Community Mennonite Church, striving to live into a theology of justice, joy, and humor, and dreaming of holy spaces where people can tell the truth and engage as their full selves.
