Seth began serving as rector of St. Luke's in May 2018, in addition to his ongoing role as Executive Director of the Hospitality Center.
Seth's journey has been varied, including work with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, teenage girls with behavioral disorders, and as an Episcopal missionary in Taiwan.
A lifelong learner, Seth has degrees in Sociology, Music Education, Theology, and Nonprofit Management (almost!). His broad experiences living and working with those who are the most vulnerable deeply inform his commitment to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who is God with Us.
In addition to the typical resume items, he continues to play cello as time allows, sweat out the small stuff by cycling or doing push-ups in his office, and enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife Lara and daughters Miriam and Hannah.
