Uriah serves as the College Missioner for the Northeastern part of the Diocese, primarily focused on UT Tyler as well as TJC and Texas College Students.
A native East Texan, Uriah was born, baptized, and confirmed as a Lutheran before he started to attend services at Christ Church in 2016 and was received into the Episcopal Church by Bishop Jeff Fisher in November 2017. Prior to receiving the call from the Diocese Uriah has served in many capacities before and since his time Christ Church including EYC Ministry, Lay Reader, Church Council president and many others. Amongst getting the chance to share the love of Christ to area college students, Uriah is passionate about his love of local food spots, basketball, the Buffalo Bills and R&B/Soul music (especially his favorite musician, Prince, whom he shares a birthday with).
Uriah considers this calling to be the greatest honor and privilege of his life to have the opportunity to further community and serve God here in Tyler and the Northeast Convocation of the Diocese of Texas.
