An artist and theologian, Ann is a Presbyterian (PCUSA) minister with degrees from Eckerd College (’77) and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary (’82). In addition to serving churches in Greenville, Jacksonville, Raleigh and Baton Rouge for the past twenty-six years, Ann has been the Director of Arts Ministries at Montreat Conference Center, Montreat, NC, for the past fifteen summers. Her passion is starting pottery and arts ministries in churches during the rest of the year. She recently received her Doctor of Ministry degree in Arts and Theology from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC, based on her work, “Arts and Theology Integrated: Pottery Ministry, Creation, Redemption and Sacramental Presence,” under the direction of Catherine Kapikian, author of Art in Search of the Sacred.
Ann lives in Greenville, Mississippi, with her husband, Mike Caulfield, children Sally (19) and Doug (16), and many animals. Her loves, in addition to her family, include playing the violin and piano, making pots, visiting, writing sermons, reading books, growing plants, drawing and painting, making pies with wild combinations of things inside the crust (there’s a sermon in that) and enjoying other people’s cooking.
