Sister Annie is our pastor’s soul mate, best friend and the glue that keeps the family and ministry together. She was born in St. Louis Missouri and raised in Omaha Nebraska by her mother Emma Shirley. She worked for Northwest Airlines for 17 years and she retired as a Guardian ad Litem with the Fourth Judicial District Court Hennepin County where she advocated for youth. She is a dedicated usher, part of the women’s ministry, directs the youth program the A.R.K. and works with the youth of NCBC.
Sis. Annie is an inspiration and an example to women everywhere who are balancing responsibilities both inside and outside the home. This is a fact since she is a wife, mother of seventeen and grandmother of seventeen. When asked what her favorite Scripture is she stated, 1 Samuel 3.
Sis Annie is committed to empowering women, children and families to connect and grow strong with a foundation of faith in Jesus Christ.
In closing, When we thank God for our pastor We must give Him thanks for two, For when your husband came to us God also sent us you.
A pastor’s wife must be many things, you have many hats to wear,and we say thanks for all you do and lift you up in prayer. You adjust your life to meet the needs of your husband’s congregation, and it seems that you can always cope with most any situation.
