Pastor Anne Kadue
- Bachelor of Arts from St. Cloud State University
- Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary
The vision I hold for the Church is one of great hope, compassion and promise in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I see incredible opportunities for the Church to embrace a broken world through transformational Christ-centered ministry that seeks and nurtures communities of faith to love God and serve one another in Christ. I see my role as providing leadership that administers Service, Word, Sacrament & Order to, and for, God’s people while supporting the Church in thinking “outside the box” to grow in faith and service to others.
I am a creative, courageous, and outgoing pastor who loves the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength. I am an experienced and dynamic preacher who isn’t afraid to try new things. I feel called to sit with the seniors, to sing with youth, to pray with mothers, to visit the employee in the factory, to proclaim the presence of God in the community, to serve the hungry, to visit the sick, to uplift the gifts of others in living Church. I am not afraid for the future of the Church; and I feel called more than ever to serve in whatever way I can, for as long as I can.
What I Do for Fun and Relaxation
My husband and I reside in Edina with our blended family including our children ages 8 years to 17 years old. Needless to say, every day provides an opportunity for grace. We love as a family spending time in the great Minnesota outdoors. Canoeing, gardening, swimming, hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, eating dinner outside, and taking a walk are just some of our warmer weather activities. We take every opportunity in the winter months to embrace sledding, hockey, ice fishing, bonfires, and a winter walk.
Since graduating seminary, I have started to once more enjoy reading for pleasure and finding the time to finish a good book.
