Anna-Kate Rader

Communications Associate for Art and Design

Ministry Role & Responsibility: I’m responsible for managing the weekly worship guides, creating all things print and digital for the church, and designing graphics for various ministry projects.

About Me: I grew up in Birmingham, AL and have always loved art and design. I attended Auburn University and received a degree in Studio Art, with plans to become an art teacher. Right after graduating, I decided to move back to Birmingham in order to pursue a second degree in Graphic Design from UAB.

I’ve spent the last few years working in Memphis, TN, where I made so many good friends, including my husband, Adam! We got married in the middle of the pandemic and it’s been so fun rediscovering Birmingham while introducing him to the city for the first time. We love trying new restaurants, attending concerts, going on hikes, and watching old seasons of Survivor. I absolutely love being a graphic designer, but still regularly put my fine art degree to use by doing pottery in my free time!

On Staff and Member of Brook Hills Since: April 2021

Favorite Scripture:

“For you shall go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress;
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall make a name for the Lord,
an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

 – Isaiah 55:12-13

Interesting Fact: Growing up, my family took (and still takes) really elaborate summer road trips. Because of this, I’ve visited almost all 50 states, love national parks, and have toured more historic battlefields than I’d care to mention.
