On, July 29 the Rev. Dr. Anne Fisher will begin her time as Oak Grove Presbyterian’s Transitional Pastor.
Anne graduated from Princeton Seminary and was ordained in 1982. She has served 20 congregations as an interim/transitional pastor, including large city and suburban churches and small rural churches.
Anne and her husband Gregg Dana lived for 21 years in Gurnee, IL, a Chicago suburb. Gregg retired as a Presbyterian minister and mental health counselor, and their plan was to move to interesting places as Anne continued her career as a transitional pastor. They moved to Plymouth MN where Anne served the Plymouth Presbyterian Church and enjoyed this area so much that they changed their plan and decided to make the Twin Cities their home base.
Since March, Anne and Gregg live in a newly-built 49-unit Cooperative Living building in St Anthony Park on the Luther Seminary grounds. They are enjoying their new home and getting acquainted with 75 new friends.
Anne and Gregg have four children and five grandchildren. Robert and family are in Reston, Virginia. William and family live in Minneapolis. Elizabeth and her new husband live in Berlin, Germany, and Christina lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
Anne and Gregg enjoy traveling, spending time with family, working out and taking walks around the many lakes in the area, and reading the books suggested by the Minneapolis Institute of Art Book Club. Anne is excited and looking forward to entering into the wonderful ministry of Oak Grove Presbyterian Church.
Welcome, Pastor Anne!
