Meet Our Youth Ministers

Annastasia Eftink


C: (573) 421-5592

Annastasia hails from the bootheel of Missouri and all of her favorite things start with “c,” Catholicism, CrossFit, Chacos, coffee, and cows! When she’s not on the clock you can usually find her throwing barbells or in some sort of wild place. This girl is always up for an adventure, and she’s usually on one whether intentionally or not. Having met the Lord in college through a missionary before being called into mission herself in the great state of Wisconsin with Spiritus Ministries, Annastasia now claims the Sunflower State as her home (sort of).

Lee McMahon


C: (785) 218-2708

After an extensive and arduous hand-modeling career, Lee made the switch into ministry and now serves as one of the two youth ministers at Church of the Ascension. Growing up a wayward wild-child in the great city of Lawrence, KS, Lee found the Lord during his senior year of high school and has since become a Bible-thumping Catholic on fire for serving Jesus and His Church. A lover of ultimate frisbee and all things tacos, Lee is on a dual mission to redeem the vocation of fatherhood and to sanctify the world through the ‘little way’ of family life. He lives in Overland Park, KS with his amazing wife, Adelle, and their two kiddos Josiah (2) and Gianna (3mo).

Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid, nor lose heart; for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9
