Connectional and Diversity, Missions, and Justice Team
Born in the Philippines and a lifelong Hoosier, Roscel comes from a very large, close-knit Filipino family. She says she attributes her deep love for the Lord from being taught to lead a prayerful life by her grandmother and mother. She is aware that all her talents are God-given and is excited to apply them to promote ministry at the Indiana Conference in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. She lives daily by this Scripture: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Annettra leads the Conference’s inclusion, diversity equity and anti-racism efforts and is a certified administrator of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), a tool being utilized to equip leaders to develop their intercultural competency.
Since 2019, Annettra has served as Associate Pastor at West Lafayette St. Andrew UMC. When she’s not reading or listening to a book, she enjoys spending time with her children playing board games, and religiously observing Taco Tuesday. She is also the proud nana of her first grandson, Isaiah.
Tosh is a part of the leadership board at her church, Gobin United Methodist, and loves singing with the worship team. Her passion for anti-racism education has led her to organizing work with local community organizations, churches, and elementary schools with the ongoing goal of helping others realize our shared humanity and connectedness. In addition to her extensive work in education, she also works with the unhoused population in Greencastle and is an advocate for the disabled through her work with Putnam County Comprehensive Services. Tosh is passionate about social activism, community service, and building relationships.
Tosh holds a BA in Communications from DePauw University
