"Where faith and friendships grow" 
   Home      About the Pastor


Rev. Anne Dahlberg Kowalczyk has been selected as Stated Supply Pastor at IPC. She moved to Corpus Christi four years ago to be the Manager of Spiritual Care for the three CHRISTUS Spohn Hospitals in Corpus Christi. Prior to this she was the Director of Spiritual Care at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital in New London, Ct. She did her graduate religious studies at Hartford Seminary and Yale Divinity School and she is a Board Certified Chaplain. She served as the Acting Associate Pastor at the First Congregational Church in Essex, Ct for two years where she helped guide the congregation through an interim period. 

Anne is married to Rick, who is delighted in being retired. She has two step-children; Smyth who lives with his family outside of Houston, and Jessica who lives with her son in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She also has two sons, Taylor who lives in El Paso with his new bride, and Nick, who is a chef in Corpus Christi.

As she has primarily been a chaplain and manager, she is excited to take on the challenge of preaching and leading worship on a weekly basis. During her “transition” out of CHRISTUS Health, she has been learning as much as she can about the South Texas environment. She has tried her hand at “birding,” has trained to be a turtle rescue volunteer, and volunteers at a therapeutic riding center in Flour Bluff and Metro Ministries in Corpus.

If you are searching for that place to replenish your spirit, please visit
Island Presbyterian Church, 14030 Fortuna Bay Drive for the 10:00 a.m. service. During the summer months you can also join us at Whitecap Beach at 8:00 a.m. for Beach Worship (please bring a blanket or chair).
