The Rev. Anita M. Slovak and her husband, Johnny, came to Christ the King from Duncan, Oklahoma, where Mother Anita was Rector of All Saints Episcopal Church from 2011 to Spring, 2016. During a 15-year career in the Dioceses of Dallas and Oklahoma, she wore many hats, serving as a Business Manager, Director of Christian Education, Curate or Assistant, Chaplain, Clergy Assistant and, finally, as Rector. A graduate of Southern Methodist University, she is also a Certified Stephen Leader. Our new Rector is passionate about volunteer ministry.
In Duncan, she served as president of Christians Concerned, a United Way agency that provides temporary, emergency assistance to individuals and families in crisis. Leading by example, she also participated in several mission trips to Honduras, going beyond her church walls to serve as a disciple to others.
Mother Anita brings extensive business and technological experience to our parish. Prior to receiving God’s call to the Episcopal Church, she worked for more than 20 years at Texas Instruments in Dallas, Texas, where she was a Senior Business Analyst, trained in change management, human resources and staffing.
The family also includes two grown sons, Andrew and Matthew, both of whom reside in the Dallas area.
