Annika Sangster, Spiritual Growth & Outreach Minister
I grew up where many Sangsters grew up: in a small fishing village far up on the Eastern Shores of Guysborough County. After attending Mount Allison University, I took courses at AST, but ultimately decided to pursue diaconal ministry at the Centre for Christian Studies. Throughout my studies, I worked as a student minister. In 2007, I married my “person”, Bobby Pace.
In 2009, I graduated from the Centre, but I will always be a lover of learning, and have continued to take courses covering a wide range of topics: Godly Play, yoga, art therapy, grief support groups, social enterprise, binding arbitration, interim ministry, professional ethics and boundaries, just to name a few.
In 2019, I celebrated fifteen years in paid accountable ministry, (ten in ordered ministry) and began a journey of a different sort: parenthood. Although Bobby and I have been parents to two fur babies for a number of years, parenting human children is a whole new adventure!
In my spare time, I enjoy creative pursuits: knitting, crocheting, baking, plasticine, and being outside geocaching, biking or camping. I look forward to getting back to program ministry and look forward to exploring online ministry further with you good folks.
