The rector, parish staff, seminarians, vestry, and ministry coordinators of St. George's work together in collaboration with the congregation to carry out St. George's mission to worship God and share our faith through word, action, and service.


CLERGY AND STAFF


The Rev. Kevin LJ Schubert, Rector

Kevin Schubert

Kevin was born and raised in Brenham, Texas, and often visited the "big city" of Austin as a child. He attended Texas State University; after receiving his bachelor's degree in anthropology and history, he served as an archeologist for Texas State until 2001. He moved to Houston in 2001, where he met his wife, Heather, and served as Director of Ministries at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Following a call to ordained ministry, Kevin returned to central Texas with Heather to pursue his master's degree in divinity at the Seminary of the Southwest. He was ordained in 2007, and his first parish assignment was at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in northwest Austin. Since May 2010, Kevin has served as rector of St. George's, which he describes as a "loving, compassionate community" and considers part of his own family, which includes two sons, Holden and Harper. When he's not wearing his collar, Kevin often can be found canoeing down the waterways of central Texas or playing percussion in two bands, The Naughty Pines and Two-Day Suitcase.

Jim w stole cropped 2.png

Jim was raised in Los Angeles, where he graduated from an Episcopal secondary school. He then attended college in Michigan and New York, and he and his wife have lived in Texas since 1989. They raised two children here; both are now grown and living out of state, one in Portland and the other in Brooklyn. Jim has been at St. George’s since the fall of 2018, and he was ordained to the vocational diaconate in June 2019. The ministry of the diaconate is one of service, and Jim’s focus since coming to St. George’s has been on pastoral care and on outreach to our homeless neighbors.
