Staff

Rector: Ryan Jones

Lead Priest  |  ryan@eucharistSF.org

Clergy headshotFr. 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. 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.

Ryan blogs at Christopolis, a blog attempting to reclaim a communal vision of the Christian gospel.

Assistant Priest: Kyle Logan

Administration & Liturgy  |  kyle@eucharistSF.org

Kyle Logan 1Kyle 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)

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).
