Lover of God, wife, mother and pastor. Christian Ann grew up in California on a vineyard, then turned Minnesotan when she moved here to attend Bethel University. She studied Communication and Bible. Soon after college she helped plant a church community in Northeast Minneapolis called Mill City Church where she now serves as the Pastor of Community and Care. She then went on to Bethel Seminary graduating with a Masters of Divinity. At Bethel she met her husband, JD and has the privilege of serving with him on the pastoral team at Mill City. Last March she and JD met and adopted their daughter Rosie Grace, she is an absolute joy. This July they will be welcoming the 4th member of their family! Christian Ann sees it as an absolute privilege to be with you all this weekend.
