SE Region Missionary

Southeast Region: The Rev. Rachel Thomas 
Booklet (PDF) with all Region Missionaries

I am honored to continue this call of Region Missionary, sharing the life of God’s Spirit amongst the people of the Southeast Region. The last two years of getting to know the 16 parishes, as well as numerous other nonprofits and agencies, has brought me face to face with Jesus’ love made flesh in our own time.

As someone who brought 10 years of lay ministry and 26 years of parish ministry into this role, I am constantly aware of the need for new wineskins for new wine. And deeply aware that, while they may change form, the core beliefs I have held onto for all these years: grace,
forgiveness in Christ, the importance of beloved community, the gift of creation – remain.

I love beaches and sitting in the sun, as well as swimming, cycling, and walking our Brittany Spaniel, Coleman, with my husband Eric. Whenever we can, we see Eric’s three grown children and four grandchildren, who live in Manhattan, Brooklyn (NY) and Southington.
