Dear Parish Members:
Your Vestry is pleased to welcome two new priests to our clergy team at Grace-St. Luke's starting February 1—the Reverend Noah Campbell and the Reverend Jerry Crook.
The Rev. Noah Campbell has a Doctorate of Ministry from the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. His thesis focused on church-supported agriculture and he serves as director of Memphis Center for Food and Faith. Noah was ordained in Memphis in June 2016 and has served as vicar of the Church of the Annunciation in Cordova. The Rev. Campbell’s wife, Allyson, is the Middle School science teacher at Grace-St. Luke’s School and they have two sons, Leo and Feliz.
The Rev. Campbell will assist Grace-St. Luke's part-time with Sunday worship and school chapels.
The Rev. Jerry V. Crook received a Master of Divinity degree from The General Theological Seminary in New York City. He is a Memphis native and did his undergraduate work at Lambuth. Jerry retired in the Diocese of Georgia in 2007. Since returning to Memphis, he has served as an assisting priest at St. George’s Germantown, as well as priest-in-charge at All Saints' Memphis. Jerry is married to Sandy Webb Baker Crook. Many of you will remember Sandy as a member of GSL since 1959 and from her work with pastoral care in years past.
The Rev. Crook will be serving as assisting priest at Annunciation in Cordova and will offer pastoral care in partnership with Amanda McGriff and the Rev. Amy George at Grace-St. Luke's.
Please make an effort to meet them and make them feel welcome.
