I am very excited to be joining the St. Margaret's community as your seminarian.  I am eager to meet the members of this community and to hear how you came to be a part of this place.

I was drawn to St. Margaret's because of your commitment to social justice, your use of inclusive and expansive language in worship, the diversity of your community, and your love of our Lord Jesus Christ. During my time with you I hope to learn about your vibrant parish life, and your passions and convictions as a community.  I want to explore how this community educates and forms one another for ministry and how the ministry of all the baptized is celebrated and utilized.

Though I grew up in the Baptist tradition, I have been an Episcopalian for over 10 years.  I have a deep love for the Anglican tradition and I am excited to further explore my love of Anglican worship by participating in the expansive and inclusive worship of this community.

Please help me get to know you by telling me what drew you to St. Margaret's.  I look forward to hearing your stories.

Peace, Jacob
