Westminster is excited to announce that Kelsey Crouch-Dodson has been named the new Director of Stewardship. Church leaders began an extensive search for the position after Mary Hess announced her retirement this summer. Kelsey is well known at Westminster and currently serves as a Ruling Elder of Session, Stewardship Co-Chair, and as the Christian Vocations Team Committee Chair.
“Kelsey brings to this role a combination of good professional stewardship experience, creative energy, and knowledge of our congregation that will help Westminster continue its strong tradition of generosity,” said Senior Pastor Tim Hart-Andersen.
Kelsey’s professional experience in development work includes working for Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and The ALS Association in Minneapolis. Currently, Kelsey works as a Senior Decision Science Coordinator at BWF, a fundraising consulting firm that advises clients in higher education, healthcare, and the nonprofit sector on philanthropic strategies.
Born and raised in Texas, Kelsey attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas, and moved to Minneapolis in 2015 with her husband, Taylor Crouch-Dodson. The couple welcomed their first child, Rowan, this past year.
“It is truly a blessing to serve a community so near and dear to my heart. I look forward to deepening my connections with the congregation and building on the established legacy of stewardship at Westminster,” said Kelsey.
Kelsey will begin her new position December 1. The November Session meeting will be her last one as an elder as she shifts to her staff role.
