Justin received his degree of Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School, along with a Diploma in Anglican Studies from Berkeley Divinity School.
Justin grew up in McLean, Virginia and he went to the College of William and Mary, where he majored in Religious Studies and History. His wife, Elena, is also from the Old Dominion. She grew up in Vienna and also attended William and Mary. After finishing college, Elena spent two years as a Teach for America teacher in New York City. Until recently, she was an ESOL teacher in Fairfax County. She is currently a stay-at-home mom, looking after their three small children, Joelle, Gabriel, and John Pascal.
Prior to coming to Leeds, Justin was the Associate Rector at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in McLean from 2009 to 2011, where his ministry focused on strengthening programs for children, youth, and young adults.
Justin is excited that God has called him to serve Leeds Parish, a community that has a special place in his heart: his parents were married at Leeds; he was baptized here; and his grandparents were longtime members until they passed away.
