CLERGY AND STAFF
The Rev. Kevin LJ Schubert, Rector
Born and bred in the heart of Blue Bell country (Brenham), where he reigned as King of Maifest in 1995, Kevin used to travel to the "big city" of Austin as a child and worked here while attending Texas State University. After receiving his bachelor's degree in anthropology and history, he served as an archeologist for Texas State until 2001 and then moved to Houston, 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. His first parish assignment after ordination in 2007 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 now 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."
Anne Weaver, Music Minister
Anne began her work as St. George's music minister in July 2013, coming to us after five years as music director at First Christian Church in San Marcos. Growing up, she lived in several small towns near Amarillo (Hereford, Dumas, and Plainview, to be exact). Anne received her bachelor's and master's degrees in music from Wayland Baptist University and Texas State University, respectively. She moved to Austin in 2012 when she started working part-time for a CPA and now loves the shorter commute to her church music job! In her leisure time, Anne likes to read and occasionally does some writing. She and her boyfriend, Scott, were recently featured in the newspaper for their participation in a pinball league, and they enjoy trivia nights at a local pub and Master Pancake Theater at Alamo Drafthouse. Anne is excited to be at St. George's and feels blessed to be able to use music to help people worship or further their faith.
Jerri Thompson, Head of School
Jerri Thompson began her new role with St. George's School in the spring of 2014 and brings 30 years of experience in early childhood education to the position. Jerri formerly taught in the Child Development Department of Houston Community College and developed "Scope and Sequence" for infants through kindergarteners, an assessment tool for teachers and parents.
Jennifer Joslyn-Siemiatkoski, Office Administrator
Jennifer began working at St. George's in November 2015 and brings many years of experience in Episcopal churches and non-profit organizations. She moved to Austin from Berkeley, California, and lived in Boston prior to that. She's thrilled to have the opportunity to put her interest in and knowledge about church life to use here at St. George's. When not at work, she spends most of her time with her husband and two young children, who keep her very busy!
Abram is a Senior at the Seminary of the Southwest and a Postulant for Holy Orders from the Diocese of Mississippi. He has a long history of youth ministry on the parish and diocesan level. Prior to coming to Texas, he served as the Camp Director of Camp Bratton-Green, an Episcopal church camp, for the past five years. He came to the seminary with his wife Lucy Kay and daughter Magdalene. Abram and Lucy Kay are excited to be part of the community of St. George's.
Lauren is a Middler at the Seminary of the Southwest and a Postulant for Holy Orders from South Carolina. She has a passion for living into and sharing the Gospel message of Loving God and Loving Neighbor, which has led her into an ever-evolving ministry in social justice in recent years. She's from “all over,” and she's learned to find home wherever God takes her (and her two cats). She is excited to be serving with St. George’s as her seminary field placement.
Richelle is a Senior at the Seminary of the Southwest and a Postulant for Holy Orders with the Diocese of Alabama. She was born and raised in Southern Utah, and I earned a bachelor’s degree in technical theatre from Southern Utah University. Following her first vocation, she moved to Alabama in 2002, where she found the Episcopal Church and a calling to ordained ministry. She moved to Austin from Montgomery, Alabama with her husband Jeff Pridmore and a small herd of four-legged children (both cats and dogs). Richelle is thankful for the opportunity to serve and worship with the community of St. George's.
