Meet Anne Cregger
Navigators 20s City Leader
As a native to the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area, I appreciate its complexities and challenges more every year.
My discipleship of people in their 20s began in 1994 with the launch of the Falls Church Fellows Program at The Falls Church Episcopal (Now TFC Anglican), where the work was and continues to be to equip recent college graduates to live seamless lives of faith in all areas: family, vocation, community, discipleship and service, for the sake of others and the glory of God.
In 2010, The Navigators invited me to lead Nav20s DC, where I now spend most of my time meeting with young people searching for greater connection with God and their peers. Their origins, family dynamics, faith and professions vary, and it is always my privilege to help them find greater connection and meaning as they settle into this rich metropolitan area.
Just before joining The Navigators, I spent 10 years in the field of corporate leadership development, working with both federal agencies and nonprofits on their organizational development needs. I facilitated discussions around mentoring, emotional intelligence and organizational dynamics; I learned a great deal about the human need for connection and understanding in all areas of their lives. These truths deeply influence my approach to the Nav20s DC ministry and my work with 20- and 30-somethings.
I’m married to George Patterson, a practicing ophthalmologist. Between us we have six grown children and three grandchildren. We love the community God has provided us while living in Arlington, Virginia.
