Mary Anne Kull
Mary Anne and her family have been members of First Church since 2019. She is originally from Little Rock. Mary Anne taught 5th grade for 8 years, and most recently she served as mid-youth minister at McAlester United Methodist Church in McAlester, OK. She loves to have meaningful and thought-provoking conversations with students about their faith, and she believes that working with youth challenges her to be in the word of God daily and to never underestimate the young.
Married to husband Andy, they are the parents of three wonderful daughters––Maggie (4), Hazel (2), and Violet (18 mos). Mary Anne likes to go running, engage in DIY projects, go on family walks, and spend time with her family and friends. Mary Anne will have primary responsibility over grades 5 and 6, and she will help our church to envision and put into place a dedicated “mid-youth” ministry area for the first time. Her first day on staff is September 28.
Mary Anne’s favorite Bible verse is Romans 12:2 – “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
