Will has been an Episcopal priest since 2005, working to support transformative leadership within his own faith tradition and among the diverse religious communities of California. He began ordained ministry in the suburbs of our nation’s capital where he also participated in the life of the ecumenical Church of the Savior. As an Associate Pastor at Grace Cathedral, Will co-founded a unique volunteer service program, Dinner with Grace, and coordinated outreach, youth and young adult educational and liturgical programming. He worked to amplify faith voices for peace and social justice, participating in efforts to save St. Luke’s hospital and advance marriage equality.
In 2009, Will began serving St. Cyprian’s in San Francisco’s Western Addition, working with the historic African American and Afro-Caribbean congregation and their energetic urban neighborhood to nurture trust, collaboration and a variety of partnerships with visual arts, theater, music, educational, senior and children’s organizations. Most recently, Will served as Program Director for California Interfaith Power & Light, a statewide network of 700 congregations committed to addressing climate change as a moral issue through awareness education, policy advocacy, and behavioral change.
Will is a graduate of Bard College at Simon’s Rock and Virginia Theological Seminary. He and his husband Matt, an attorney, live just a few blocks from PSR.
