The Rev. Devon Anderson
Devon Anderson was called to Trinity Church in 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 20 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.
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 Social Justice and U.S. Policy. At the 2015 General Convention she chaired Liturgy, Prayer Book, and Music.
Nationally, Devon chairs the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music (2015-18). She was a member of the SCLM previously (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 has served on the Standing Commission on International and Anglican Peace with Justice Concerns, attended five General Conventions as deputy (three as Minnesota’s chair), and on the Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop which presented a slate of nominees to the church from which the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry was elected.
Devon and her husband Michael McNally have two children, one in high school and one starting college. Her family spends considerable time in city hockey arenas and soccer fields. They love the Minnesota United Soccer Club, the Minnesota Lynx, and spending time at Camp du Nord in the Boundary Waters Canoe and Wilderness Area near Ely, Minnesota.
