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 (6 years old) and Evangeline Grace (3 years old).
