Annie Ricker

Hi! I’ve been the pastor of Berryton United Methodist Church since July 1, 2019. I live in the Shawnee Heights School District along with my husband Jason and our daughter Eva. I love worship, preaching, teaching, history, and I am passionate for living out my faith in ways that make the world more just, peaceful, and kind. You can find me at the church or pretty much any coffee shop. Come find me and let’s talk about God, travel, Civil War history, Harry Potter, your favorite podcast, or just about anything else. I look forward to getting to know you!
