AMEN St. Louis Staff

Annie Girresch

Annie joined the AMEN St. Louis team in August of 2018.  She is excited about the space that AMEN creates for young people to encounter the brokenness in our community and discern how they can respond as people of faith.  She is currently a Masters in Divinity student at Eden Theological Seminary.  Annie also loves cookies and singing and dancing when she *thinks* no one is listening!

Donna Cook was raised in the neighborhood and can tell you some stories! She is one of the founding visionaries of AMEN|Saint Louis and has scheduled teams, arranged work projects, negotiated contracts, swept floors, answered late-night phone calls, folded laundry, and picked up pizzas. She really does it all. She’s a retired middle school teacher who is passionate about social justice and serving God in St. Louis.
