Rev. Anne Vining

Senior Pastor

651-774-0344 ext 216

More about me: Its hard for me to believe I've served as senior pastor here at First Covenant for over 15 years. It continues to be a privilege to watch our church community embrace a shared mission and vision for how we are called to serve our broader East Side community and the world around us, reflecting the love of Jesus Christ in tangible ways that actually transform lives. I'm grateful to serve alongside committed, gifted and godly ministry team members--both those listed here and the many within our church community--who give so generously of their time, talents and financial support to make ministry happen. My husband, Gordy, supports me and the ministries of this church in countless (and often behind the scene) ways. This is our third year as host parents to Juliana Wu, an international student from China, in the 11th grade at Mounds Park Academy. She keeps us from being full "empty nesters" while Curtis completes his "second senior year" at North Park University and Charissa teaches sixth grade english at the International School in Cali, Colombia.

Emily Caro

Nursery Coordinator


More about me: The Nursery Coordinator provides leadership to the adult volunteers to ensure our nurseries are safe, caring, and nurturing for our little ones. Some of my favorite moments with little ones are when they are engaged in music and crafts. I have two boys who are 2 1/2 and 1 year old, they give me and my husband James much joy. One of our favorite things is turning up the music and having a family dance party. Our boys love it!
