Rev. Jeffrey Still is a recently-ordained deacon in the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others. He grew up in rural, western Colorado, and came to faith while attending college in Denver. He has a long background in lay ministry in churches in Los Angeles (Pacific Crossroads, Grace Pasadena, and Gold Line Church). He began his Christian walk and journey into ministry in the Presbyterian church, but was surprised by a call to the Anglican Church in 2014 (which he followed with the encouragement of his Presbyterian mentors). He completed his M.Div from Fuller Seminary in 2014. His wife, Christina, is a pediatric neuropsychologist working in the Bay Area. Their son Emmett will turn 2 years old this fall.
