Published: 8 November 2011

The Northrise Family has been saddened to hear of the passing of Ann McCulloch.  Ann lost her battle with cancer last week, going home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 1st.  Ann’s career included serving as a nurse in Houston, a children’s minister in Phoenix, and raising three incredible children.

Ann was a true friend of Northrise. She was a generous partner, traveling to Zambia in 2008 and 2010. She was one of our greatest prayer warriors and hosted gatherings in her home to introduce her friends and family to Northrise’s vision to transform Zambia one student at a time. Her generosity was unbelievable.

Memorial services for Ann McCulloch will be held at North Phoenix Baptist Church at 1:oopm on Saturday, November 12th.  Dr. Moffat Zimba will be in attendance, and all are welcome to come celebrate her life.  For those who do not live in Phoenix, the service will also be live-streamed here.

In honor of her passion for the kingdom of God globally and Northrise University, Ann’s family has set up a giving fund in her name to continue serving the people of Zambia. Contributions can be made on her behalf by clicking here, indicating “Ann’s Memorial Fund” in the designation.

Together, we celebrate a life well-lived, full of faith, hope and love for people all over the world.
