She has had a variety of experiences, in addition to pastoring four very different congregations in vastly different circumstances, she had been the CEO of the Fund for Theological Education in Atlanta and the president of Texas Lutheran University in Seguin.
Currently, Bishop Ann Svennungsen is focused on visiting and all the ELCA congregations within the first two years of her service: So far she has visited 135 out of 155! We look forward to learning more from Bishop Ann Svennungsen on May 8th, at our spring Auggie Eye Opener.
