Senior Pastor Ann Hultquist
Pastor Ann is a Colorado native, born in Denver and raised in Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Lakewood. The common thread for those communities was the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) where her father was a professor. Her parents were very involved in local Lutheran churches wherever the family lived.
After high school she attended Gustavus Adolphus College and the University of Colorado Boulder. During college years she was a camp counselor at Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp and also worked as a Youth Ministry Director at a congregation in Arvada. Those experiences helped nurture the spark of a call to ordained ministry, and she attended the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, graduating with her Masters of Divinity in 1988.
Pastor Ann has served congregations in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Casper, Wyoming; and Broomfield, Colorado. She is married to Roger Loots, and they have two adult daughters who live in Colorado and Florida. In her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, running, and reading.
She is excited by the opportunities at Augustana for all people to know God’s grace in Jesus Christ themselves and then give that grace and love away to others.
