Pastor Ann


Pastor Ann was called in 2013 to served as Pastoral Leader at the former Children's Memorial Lutheran Church and now Gathering Table Worshipping Community in Kansas City, Missouri. She graduated from Kansas State University and Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.

God and Central States Synod called Pastor Ann to the right spot!  In the heart of blighted neighborhoods, poverty, crime, and ill health, she is using her experiences, education, and passions to develop a congregation and volunteers to carry on Jesus's work.  

Pastor Ann's home church is Assaria Lutheran Church in Assaria, KS. Prior to ministry, she worked as a bank vice president in Prairie Village, KS; Director of Kansas Governor's Office for Children and Families; Ombudsman for central Kansas Social and Rehabilitation Services; and director of a housing authority. 

Pastor Ann is infatuated with reading, cooking, baking, and is a lifelong learner. Her son Joe and daughter-in-law Stefani live in Lenexa and they visit regularly with Ann's grand dog, Luther.
