Summer Seminarian

Jeffrey Stevenson is our summer 2017 seminarian, and comes to us through the Diocese of Virginia's Mid-Atlantic internship program. Jeffrey was born and raised in Utah, where he lived until he enlisted in the Navy in 1994 and became an Intelligence Specialist. After 9/11, he was recalled to active duty where he served at the Office of Naval Intelligence in the DC region and then worked for Booz Allen Hamilton. Jeffrey is now following a long-deferred calling to ministry and is a rising senior at Virginia Theological Seminary. As part of that calling he professed vows to the religious community, the Hospitallers of Saint Martin (HoSM) -- a community dedicated to serving veterans, those affected by war, and others who have experienced trauma -- and is a "Brother." Jeffrey is grateful for his time here at the parish of St. Paul's and the warm welcome he has received.
