After a 2-year search for a covenant pastor, Wickliffe Presbyterian, led by our Search Committee, the Session, and Presbytery, hired Rev. Lynn Anderson part-time Covenant Pastor on November 16, 2014.
Rev. Lynn also serves half-time Covenant Pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church in Lakewood, Ohio. Therefore, we will be sharing her time and services in what is called a "yoked church arrangement". In creating this agreement, both churches have made changes and adjustment and expressed a willing spirit to help make this a win-win situation for everyone involved. Rev. Lynn was raised near Green Bay, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison for her BS in Social Work and Criminal Justice. She finished her academic career at San Francisco Theological Seminary where she received her Master of Divinity. She has been an ordained minister for nearly 26 years. Most of her career as a minister has been in the greater Cleveland area.
Rev. Lynn lives in Euclid, Ohio with her husband, Dr. Abraham "Doc" Anderson and their children, Eva and Kosta 12 year-old twins. "Doc" is an educator with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and teaches science at East Tech. In his spare time, he is a musician, a master of the Bouzouki and several other instruments. He performs around the greater Cleveland area with his band, Europa.
Their children, Eva and Kosta attend the 7th grade at Ss. Robert and William School in Euclid. Kosta has a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and is playing football for the Ss. Robert and William Warriors this year. Eva is a dancer with Lakeshore Dance and Gymnastics, and has been on the competitive Jazz team and the Sr. Hip Hop Team for three years. Both Eva and Kosta play in the school band. Eva plays trumpet and Kosta plays clarinet.
Rev. Lynn expresses her family's love for their pets, they have three dogs, a cat, a turtle and a horse. The pets are her hobbies. The horse is kept at a farm in Leroy, when time allows she trail rides with her horse, hangs out with their dogs and hopes to certify at least one of them as a therapy dog in the near future. She also enjoys gardening.
