St. Paul Lutheran Church in Davenport has named Ann McGlynn as the church’s communications director.

McGlynn, who had been marketing and communications director for the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, begins her new job Jan. 8. McGlynn formerly was a reporter and editor for the Quad-City Times.

Kent Barnds, a member of the church’s search committee, said McGlynn is “ideal for this position.”

“Her work ethic, writing skill, and sensitivity to the importance of communicating well will serve our congregation in beautiful ways,” he said.

McGlynn is a graduate of the University of Iowa with a degree in journalism and mass communication.

The church is at 2136 Brady St.
