Jeff came to Trinity in 2012 after serving parishes in eastern Massachusetts for 25 years. He is a native of Indiana and graduate of Indiana University. He studied theology at Harvard Divinity School, receiving the Master of Divinity degree in 1985. He was ordained a priest in The Episcopal Church in 1989. He later did two years of study toward a PhD at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy as a Fellow of the Episcopal Church Foundation.
Jeff and his wife, Carolyn, have been married for 44 years and have two adult children and one grandchild. Liz, along with her husband and their son, Sebastian, lives in Portland, Oregon, and is the co-owner and Creative Director of a brand design agency. George lives in Los Angeles and has his fingers in a variety of entrepreneurial ventures primarily in technology development.
Jeff loves beautiful liturgy and music, good preaching, building community, and finding the connections between what we say and do in church with the needs we experience in our world. He chairs the Global Mission Network for the Diocese of Olympia and serves on the Bishop’s Committee on the Environment. And he finds Trinity to be the perfect place to put all his many and diverse interests and loves into practice!
