Leigh Anne Ring
Presbyter for Relational Care
Leigh Anne Ring provides pastoral support and oversight of presbytery ministers, educators, chaplains, and commissioned pastors. She also serves as staff liaison to the Commission on Ministry.
In 2022, Leigh Anne earned a Master of Divinity from Union Presbyterian Seminary. She is a candidate for ordination to the ministry of Word and Sacrament. She also holds a Master of Arts in Christian education and was certified as a Christian educator in 2001.

Leigh Anne is married to Jim Ring and they have two adult children. She describes herself as an “indoor Presbyterian” with a deep appreciation for God’s good creation from the inside of a window.
Leigh Anne is looking forward to living into this identity that God had planned for her long before she dared to dream it for herself with the church family that she already deeply loves.
