Interim Director of Christian Education
Ann is a longstanding member of Faith Church. She has also served as a Ruling Elder and Clerk of Session, as well as the VBS Director for many summers. Ann has been a stalwart on the Christian Education Committee. We are happy that when the CE Director position became vacant, she was willing to step up and lend her talents to overseeing our Christian Education program from nursery to preschoolers, to school-aged children, youth, and adults. She has also directed the annual Children’s Christmas Pageant. She keeps our church equipped with everything from up-to-date computers to curricula and white boards. Ann knows how to get things done! She can even chase a cow or two (she farms). She has taken courses in Education from Monmouth College, and has a degree in Agricultural Economics as well as a law degree from the University of Illinois.
