Anna Lisa Gross

Anna Lisa Gross grew up on a mini-commune of Christian hippies, who prefer to call themselves the Grosses and the Kindys. Anna Lisa and her husband Phillip recently moved back to Joyfield Farm to be part of a new generation seeking sustainability in community. However, Anna Lisa spends a lot of her time in Fort Wayne as co-Pastor of the Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren, as they explore being a progressive church in this rapidly changing culture and world. As capitalism and militarism annihilate, her communities are exhausted by trying to take care of themselves and each other. Anna Lisa is praying for hope and hoping for transformation. Four-legged companions, knitting and audiobooks bring her joy.
