Rev. Katie Sexton

Executive Director

We are delighted to announce the hire of our permanent Executive Director, Rev. Katie Sexton.

As you’ll recall, for the last year AFN has been under the wise direction of our Interim Director, Dr. Jannah Scott, who helped AFN through our transition year during the interim period. We are grateful for her service and wish her well in her new position back with government services.

Rev. Sexton comes to AFN with years of nonprofit experience specializing in ministry, leadership, interfaith work, and community organizing. She has a proven track record of building impactful communities who work to transform our world for the common good.

Most recently, Rev. Sexton served as the Senior Pastor for Coolwater Christian Church in Scottsdale, Arizona. Prior to that she worked for Grand Canyon University developing critical relationships and clinical partnership opportunities for student training, as a founding department manager for the Office of Field Experience in the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions.

Rev. Sexton has her M.S. in Nonprofit Management (2019), a Master of Divinity from Lexington Theological Seminary, and an M.A. in Christian Studies from Grand Canyon University. She is ordained with the Disciples of Christ church, and is a certified Community Organizer. She is currently a Board of Directors member of AFN and has volunteered her service on multiple committees.

In the near future the Arizona Faith Network will hold a reception to welcome our new Director.
