Clergy & Staff

The Rev. Chad Jones, Rector

Father Chad Jones began as Priest-in-Charge at The Church of the Resurrection in February of 2016. Together, he and the parish have embraced a calling to nurture, heal and grow small congregations — beginning with Resurrection. He happily accepted a call to serve as Rector in 2019 and also holds a place on the diocesan staff as bishop’s Canon for Congregational Development. He is also an honorary canon of Christ Church Cathedral in New Orleans and makes a mean pot of gumbo. Chad is married to Kim and they have three children: Patrick, Andrew and Lily.

All but the youngest choirs toured annually in such venues as the Washington National Cathedral, Carnegie Hall, Westminster Abbey, and Canterbury Cathdrals.
