Father Michael Anderson, Ph.D.

Director of Ministry Development

Michael is one of those pesky Californians who relocated to Texas in 2019. He grew up in a non-denomenational church outside of Los Angeles. He and his family moved to Scotland in 2013, where Michael pursued a Masters and PhD in the study of Theology and the Arts. While there, Michael shifted into the Scottish Episcopal Church and around the same time he felt a clear calling to the priesthood. Michael came to Annunciation in June 2021 to serve as Director of Ministry Development, while also pursuing ordination into the priesthood. His favorite passage of scripture is Philippians 2:5-11 because it outlines so beautifully the great lengths that Christ went to be near and bring salvation to us, his people. "Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name." Michael is married to Francina Anderson and they have four elementary aged children.

Joanne Teeters

Outreach Coordinator

Joanne Teeters is from Virginia, specifically, Waynesboro, Virginia in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley.  She is a cradle Episcopalian and finds great comfort and peace in our liturgy.  Joanne and her family moved to Flower Mound, Texas in 2005 due to her husband’s job transfer. We came to Annunciation as we investigated pre-school options for our son, having Episcopal and Montessori as the top preferences. The Montessori Episcopal School was a perfect fit for our son. Annunciation became our church and we’ve been attending here since 2006. My favorite bible verse is I Corinthians 13:1-13, the Gift of Love “…faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” This passage speaks to me as it molds how I look at the world around me, frames the way I want to live my life and helps me choose the path I want to follow. Joanne is married and they have one son, who is attending college. We also have a loving, super-sized and very fluffy Australian Shepherd, named Caveman.
