Eva Anderson oversees the Connections ministry here at Grace. She is passionate about meeting people, helping others get connected and seeing everyone at Grace grow closer to Christ. Eva married her best friend, Steve, in 1991 and they have two precious gifts from God – Teddy and Grace – who both joined their family through the miracle of adoption. Eva and Steve grew up in Minnesota and moved to Iowa – and to Grace – in 2002. They enjoy frequent visits to Minnesota to see family and take in great traditions like the Minnesota State Fair. Before becoming a mom in 2000, Eva enjoyed her career as an elementary school teacher for seven years. Alongside her family and ministry, Eva loves gardening, watching movies and eating Ghirardelli chocolate.
