Jordan Tarwater


Jan Orr Harter Minister of Social Justice


Jordan  is committed to a God of justice and grace, and, equally, to a Church that responds to those gifts in action, compassion and justice-centered hospitality. At Jan Hus, he leads the work of our Urban Outreach Center.


Jordan received his Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York and has begun his doctoral work through Claremont School of Theology. He was ordained into the Validated Ministry of The Urban Outreach Center of Jan Hus Presbyterian Church in February 2017 and became Avenue Church NYC's Jan Orr Harter of Social Justice in 2019.

He was raised in East Tennessee and graduated from Maryville College in 2013. He loves hiking and backpacking in the Appalachian mountains, spending time with his wife, Mary, and watching Tennessee Volunteers football. He has yet to find a proper glass of sweet tea in New York City. You can follow him on Twitter at @JordanTarwater
