Ann PalmertonAnn Palmerton, Associate Pastor

When I was growing up I dreamt of being an astronaut or a teacher and later a lawyer! But a persistent nudging Spirit kept drawing me to offer my time and energy in equipping God’s people to be sent out to serve.
Here at Broad Street I take delight in seeing God at work in big and small ways, continually bringing new life where there seems to be no life, new hope where there seems to be no reason to hope, and growing faith from trust as tiny as a mustard seed. I believe with all my heart those resounding words from the Apostle Paul that “nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Here at church I spend time with others in the areas of Discipleship and Care.  We’re excited about the way faith develops through our lives; and how God pursues, teaches and nurtures people of all ages.  Whatever our age or stage, we are on a journey of faith.  In community, God meets us and grows us toward the light.  We marvel in that growth across the generations!

My roots are in Escondido (near San Diego), California. I graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, California, with a degree in English Literature and Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey, with a Master of Divinity. Before coming to Broad Street in 1995 I served as an associate pastor at Point Loma Community Presbyterian Church in San Diego and as an interim associate pastor at the Indianola Presbyterian Church in Columbus.   

My husband Brad Binau has been my partner in life and faith for 26 years. Our three children are Martin, Sarah, and Trevor. Our eight year old Labradoodle, Moxie, adds a certain unpredictable, bouncy chaos to our lives.
