The Rev. Devon Anderson
Devon Anderson was called to Trinity Church in October 2011 and began her ministry on December 5, 2011. She has found in Trinity a lively, dynamic, resourceful congregation enthusiastically engaging God’s work in the world and having fun doing it!
Devon has been ordained for 18 years and before coming to Trinity served four congregations — two in Michigan (Christ Church, Detroit and St. Clare’s, Ann Arbor) and two in Minnesota (St. John’s, Minneapolis, and Epiphany, Plymouth). From 2007-2011, Devon led grant-funded community organizing projects in Episcopal dioceses and congregations around the country. These initiatives built local leadership and raised resources for global development projects around the world. During this time she served as Executive Director of Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation.
Here in Minnesota Devon served on the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota for six years, the last two years as its President. She currently serves as Chair of Minnesota’s Deputation to General Convention and this summer will chair the legislative committee on Liturgy, Prayer Book, and Music. Nationally she has served on the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music (2003-2009) and in that capacity chaired the project that resulted in the publication of Enriching Our Worship 5: Rachel’s Tears, Hannah’s Hopes. She is finishing up a term on the Standing Commission on International and Anglican Peace with Justice Concerns and at General Convention 2012 was elected to the Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop which will present a slate a nominees to the church for our next Presiding Bishop this year.
Devon, and her husband Michael McNally, have two children: Svea and Coleman. The family spends enormous time in city hockey arenas and on the soccer fields of Minneapolis and beyond. They love Minnesota Twins baseball and spending time at Camp du Nord in the Boundary Waters Canoe and Wilderness Area.
