Rev. Ann Lyter is the pastor at Scottsdale United Methodist Church. Pastor Ann was an attorney in Las Vegas for almost 20 years, before entering ministry full-time in 2011. Pastor Ann has brought the tradition of Holy Humor Sunday to Scottsdale UMC as well as the churches she served in Las Vegas, Griffith, Heritage, and Journey UMCs. A life-long Methodist, Pastor Ann first learned about Holy Humor as a seminary student at Claremont School of Theology and recognized that people need joy, and, sometimes, they need to not take life too seriously. This attitude was important last March, when Pastor Ann married her beloved Fyn just as Arizona went into lockdown, dramatically changing their wedding plans, but not their love for each other. She and Fyn live and laugh in Scottsdale with two of Pastor Ann’s three daughters. She expresses her creativity through music and cooking and loves bringing that creativity into her faith and into worship. In addition to ministry and finding joy even in dark times, Pastor Ann also enjoys quiet activities like reading, and being outdoors, including gardening, hiking, and camping.
