The Rev. Devon Anderson
Devon is in her element among the good people of Trinity Church. Arriving as Rector in 2011, she has focused her efforts joyfully on pastoral care, staff and leadership development, youth ministry, preaching and worship, planned giving and stewardship, and building impactful and meaningful relationships with Trinity’s surrounding community.
She is extremely proud of Trinity’s rich and long-standing tradition of reaching out beyond itself, forming community partnerships that: combat poverty and food insecurity, relocate refugee families, promote mental health and remove stigma associated with mental illness, engage racial reconciliation through relationship-building, training, and mutual ministry.
Devon has been ordained for over 22 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 around the country that built local leadership and raised resources for global development projects around the world.
Devon is an elected member of the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. In the wider church, she is a five-time deputy from Minnesota to General Convention, and currently serves on the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church, the Joint Standing Committee for Planning and Arrangements, the President of the House of Deputies’ Council of Advice and chairs the Task Force to Develop Churchwide Family Leave Policies (an initiative sprung from #MeToo activism at the 2018 General Convention).
Devon and her husband Michael McNally have two children, one attending Breck School and the other at Boston College. Her family spends considerable time in city hockey arenas and on soccer fields. They love the Minnesota United Football Club, the Minnesota Lynx, and spending time at Camp du Nord in the Boundary Waters Canoe and Wilderness Area near Ely, Minnesota.
