The Rev. Jeremiah Williamson, Class of 2006, has been called as the Rector of Grace and St. Stephen’s, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Raised in the Pentecostal tradition, his leadership abilities were affirmed and nurtured there first, where he led music, taught Sunday School, and led youth events. Williamson discovered the Anglican tradition while attending a Free Methodist church in college. After receiving his M.Div. from Drew Theological School, he completed a diploma in Anglican Studies at The General Theological Seminary and has a Contemporary Music degree from Greenville College.

Williamson has served at Episcopal churches since 2003, including St. Paul’s in Chatham, New Jersey, Grace Church in Madison, New Jersey, and St. John’s in Youngstown, Ohio, and most recently was Rector at St. Andrew’s in Toledo, Ohio. He is a two-time Deputy to General Convention, author of Praying the Scriptures: Litanies for Sunday Worship (Church Publishing, 2014), and a contributor to the book Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil: Stories about the Challenges of Young Pastors (James Ellis III, ed., Smyth & Helwys, 2015). He and his wife, Jennifer, an ordained United Methodist pastor, have two sons, Oscar and Isaiah.
