Anne Findlay-Chamberlain has devoted her adult life to journeying with people as they seek wholeness. She has a B.S. in Health and Physical Education, a M.Ed. in Counseling and an M.Div (Master of Divinity).
An ordained United Church of Christ pastor, Anne has served three different congregations in Hawaii (as pastor at a very small rural primarily native Hawaiian congregation in Hana, Maui; as intentional interim senior pastor at a large Japanese-American congregation in Honolulu; and as senior pastor in a medium size diverse congregation in a suburb of Honolulu). She is currently the settled pastor of St. Paul’s UCC in Woodstock, VA.
Anne is a graduate of Ashland Seminary’s Pastors of Excellence program as well as Shalem Institute’s Clergy Spiritual Life and Leadership program. She holds a certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Charlotte Spirituality Center, where she teaches a course on Theology and Tradition. In her work as a pastor, spiritual director, and retreat leader, Anne loves accompanying individuals, small groups and congregations in discovering God’s presence in their lives. Anne is married to Rod Chamberlain and they have two adult sons and four delightful grandchildren.
A lover of anything that can be done outdoors; Anne enjoys walking and hiking with her Border Collie, Kiko, (which means Spot in Hawaiian), swimming, and gardening. She is a voracious reader, and can often be found with a book on her lap, a dark roast coffee in one hand and a piece of dark chocolate in the other. She is sustained by spiritual practices; time with family (especially the grandchildren) and friends; and cooking.
