Rev. Ann Rosendale Named Campus Pastor

Rev. Ann Rosendale '04 has been named a campus pastor at Augustana. She will begin her new role with Rev. Dr. Paul Rohde in ministry to the Augustana community on Monday, April 16.

"We are thrilled that Pastor Ann has accepted the call to be campus pastor at Augustana. We are grateful both for her giftedness and her willingness to serve," said Rohde.

After graduating from Augustana, Rosendale attended Princeton Theological Seminary and was ordained as pastor of the ELCA in 2009. She served St. Paul Lutheran Church (Davenport, Iowa) as a participant in their pastoral residency program, funded by the Lilly Endowment. She returned to Sioux Falls in 2010 and most recently served as associate pastor for Peace Lutheran Church.

Rosendale's installation will be held during worship on Wednesday, April 25, in the Chapel of Reconciliation with South Dakota Synod Bishop Rev. David Zellmer presiding.

"I am thrilled to be a part of day-in, day-out campus life at Augustana once again, accompanying students on their faith journey as they navigate college life, just as so many sojourned faithfully with me during my young adult years," said Rosendale.
