NEWS FROM WICKLIFFE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH SEARCH COMMITTEE
The Search Committee is pleased to announce that Rev. Lynn Anderson has agreed to be the Temporary Pastoral Care Minister from August 17, 2014 through November 15, 2014.
Rev. Lynn is the Part-Time Covenant Pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church in Lakewood, Ohio where she has served faithfully for the past 10 years. Her desire to step-up and help the churches that have a dwindling membership has lead her to Wickliffe Presbyterian Church.
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.
The members of Wickliffe Presbyterian Church are pleased to have Rev. Lynn with us for the next several months and are grateful to find a minister that thinks "out-of-the-box", serves two churches part-time, not afraid of hard work and is a joy to be around. With the grace of God perhaps we can move forward and proudly announce that Rev. Lynn will be with us for the next ten years.
Rev. Lynn will be in the pulpit the 3rd Sunday of each month and be the Moderator of Session during her stay with us.
