Join us each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. at 1504 Bryant Street for worship.
Worship and Communion form the heartbeat of our life together in Christ. Our worship services are built around the historic shape of Christian worship and informed by our commitment to three classic streams: Scripture (Evangelical), Spirit (Charismatic), and Sacrament (Liturgical).
Eucharist is the ancient Christian word used to describe the central elements of Christian worship: the bread and wine which Christians receive by faith as the living presence of the crucified and resurrected Jesus. The original Greek word simply means “thanksgiving.”
More about sacraments and how they are central to our experience of faith.
Our Vision: We believe God is actively building us into a distinctive community of faith, an embassy or outpost for Himself right in the midst of San Francisco. This community, what the Bible calls the Body of Christ, is a continuation of the ministry and presence of Jesus—a sign, foretaste, and instrument of the coming Kingdom of God. We’ve been invited to be ambassadors of Christ, joyfully worshipping God and serving His purposes while loving our neighbors and embodying the hospitality of Christ.
Our Mission: To be formed together into a distinctive community of disciples of Jesus who live all of life in reference to God.
More about our vision and values.
We are committed to Biblical, historic Christianity, and seek to thoughtfully practice it as it has been consensually understood and faithfully practiced in all places and at all times.
We believe that Jesus is Lord. He alone is our hope and our means of communion with God. We love because He first loved us. He is our life; His Kingdom, our mission; His presence, our joy.
We believe that God has been uniquely revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All of the goodness, beauty, and joy in life ultimately traces its way back to communion with the Trinity. Our communion with the Trinity is imperfectly, but necessarily, worked out in the context of our communion with fellow members of Christ’s Body, the Church.
We believe that our faith, our lifestyle, and our common life together must be shaped, nurtured, challenged by, and obedient to the Word of God. All of Scripture is to be understood in light of Christ.

Rector | Lead Priest: Ryan Jones
Fr. Ryan has a bachelor’s degree in Theology (2002) and a Masters of Divinity (Fuller Theological Seminary, 2008). He has served as pastor on the staff of three congregations in addition to planting Eucharist Church. He was ordained in 2014 by Bp. Todd Hunter. Ryan is married to Elizabeth who has deep roots in the Bay Area. Elizabeth recently completed a Masters in Counseling | Psychology at Santa Clara University. She works part time and volunteers a lot with Eucharist. Ryan and Elizabeth believe that a healthy “domestic church” (Christian family life) is critical to the health of the larger church and structure their life to reflect this priority. They’re expecting their first child in Feb. 2018.
Ryan blogs at Christopolis, a blog attempting to reclaim a communal vision of the Christian gospel.
Assistant Priest: Joshua Wu (Drake)
Pastor of Families, Community Life, and Outreach
Joshua is a native Californian, although he has lived most of his adult life overseas in China and Northern Thailand. He has a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies, Master’s degree in Bible Translation, and has done doctoral work in Missiology. He has been a missionary in Asia for the past decade, where he has been involved in church planting and Bible translation. Living in Asia instilled in him passions to help local communities embody and communicate the Gospel through incarnational and indigenous means. He was ordained a deacon in 2015 and a priest in October 2016. He has been married to Alicia Wu for 10 years, and they have two lovely daughters Imanuela Joy (6 years old) and Evangeline Grace (3 years old). Alicia grew up in China and has served the church there in various ways. Joshua and Alicia love Chinese tea and hospitality; they welcome you to their house anytime for a Chinese tea ceremony.
Assistant Priest: Kyle Logan
Liturgist | Worship Coordinator
Kyle has a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Theology (2011) and a Master’s of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School (2014). He grew up in Southern California, but his loyalty runs deep to the Giants and the Bay Area, which meant he had to escape Dodger country. Kyle was ordained a deacon in February 2015 and a priest in October 2016. His passions in ministry involve the intersection between doubt and faith, finding echoes of the gospel in culture, and talking about God over beer. Kyle also works at a small cafe in San Francisco called Saint Frank.
A healthy church requires a strong and growing team of lay leaders. We’re currently gathering committed folks to be the building blocks of our congregation as we’re building our staff.
We’re hiring! Check our jobs page.
