The Reverend Anne H.K. apple
Anne is our Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care and Evangelism.

As a teacher and pray-er, connector, collaborator and preacher, Anne is a patient listener who loves dreaming up a good meal and calling people together around a table; as well as delighting in the solitary work of writing, disappearing into a good book or poem. She also enjoys gathering a group of folks to get out in nature and encouraging movement in the beauty of creation, all the while reflecting on God's good abundance.
Anne is a marathon runner, avid reader and writer who loves to live life to the fullest. She is married to Jim, who works with The Sterling Group as a Managing Director, and together they parent two young adult children, Betsy, (married to Daniel Eldridge, living in Raleigh, NC) and James, living in Starkville, MS; and a high school student, Abigail.
