The Rev. Tripp Jeffords, Rector My name is Julian Thomas “Tripp” Jeffords III. I am the rector or lead pastor at St. Paul’s. I grew up in Hartsville, SC. My undergraduate degree in Religious Studies is from the University of South Carolina. After graduation, I went on to complete a Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity School and an Anglican Studies program at Virginia Theological School. My ordained ministry began in 1994 as a curate at St. Helena’s in Beaufort, SC. Our family was then called to serve at St. Paul’s in Conway for almost 18 years before receiving a call to come to St. Paul’s in Summerville in 2015. My wife Leslie and I, along with our three college age sons, are excited to be serving St. Paul’s. What a great church! We love Summerville, the people with whom we serve, and the opportunities for ministry God has afforded us. We believe that our church is uniquely positioned for growth through the faithful preaching and teaching of God’s transforming word.
