Rector: Ryan Jones
Lead Priest | ryan@eucharistSF.org
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 a NorCal native married to Elizabeth (a bay area native); they are expecting their first child in Feb. 2018.

Assistant Priest: Kyle Logan
Administration & Liturgy | kyle@eucharistSF.org
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 a beer.
Assistant Priest: Joshua Wu (Drake)
Director of Table Groups & Outreach | joshua@eucharistSF.org
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 spent a decade as a missionary in Asia, where he was 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 (7 years old) and Evangeline Grace (4 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.

Bishop Todd Hunter
Bishop Todd leads the diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others which belongs to the Anglican Church in North America. He is also the rector of Holy Trinity Church in Costa Mesa, California. He is an author, speaker, and visionary who has a very busy schedule keeping watch over his geographically extended flock. We see him on several occasions a year for ordinations, confirmations, or other important diocesan events. But he is always only a phone call or email away if we need his assistance. Because of the geographical distance, however, Bishop Todd depends on a local dean to offer support. Our dean is Fr. Rob Patterson of Redeemer Anglican Church in Santa Cruz.
