Anna is a leader committed to serve the mission of Christ’s church locally and globally, with faithful integrity that applies the gospel to real-life issues and relationships with justice, innovation, academic rigour, and joyful expectation. She has an international profile in theology and apologetics, ethics, and contemporary culture, and is sought after as a speaker and teacher.

Anna came to faith at a young age in Saint John NB, and served several churches as an ordained minister of the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada. Near the end of her doctoral studies in Wales, she was appointed to the faculty of the London School of Theology in the UK where she served for 12 years as a teacher and academic leader.

In London, she was theological consultant to organizations including Theos, Christians in Politics, Tearfund, and the Evangelical Alliance. She served on the council of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and was a British delegate to the Baptist World Alliance. Her research graduates serve in diverse teaching and leadership positions around the world.

In 2012, she returned to Nova Scotia with her family, to join the faculty at ADC. Anna continues to write, travel, and speak widely with a passion to help people engage well with matters of contemporary culture and faith.
