Anna Thacker

Worship Arts/Youth Director

I have been married for just over 2 years to my amazing husband Trent and we have both been a part of Renovate for almost 10 years. We love good food, traveling and because of Jason’s pestering, I am beginning to see what all the fuss is about coffee.


Music has always played a big part in my family as my Dad was a Worship Pastor. During high school, I had the opportunity to lead worship in my youth group, and since my time at Cal Poly, I have been a part of the worship band here, at Renovate.


My love for working with students began in high school. As a leader on my church’s youth dance team, I had opportunities to lead Bible studies and mentor middle school girls. Wanting to continue to pour into young people long term, I pursued a communications degree and teaching credential at Cal Poly. After graduating, I taught 3rd and 4th grade in Santa Maria 2 years. I am so excited to be starting out on a new adventure that incorporated both of my passions, joining the Renovate team full-time as Director of Youth and Worship Arts.
