Drew is an Episcopal priest and writer living northeast of Detroit who is obsessed with building up a vibrant and authentic church and loves 90’s era dreampop. He is the Rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in St. Clair, Michigan.
While working on an MFA at Emerson College, Drew was called to a new ministry that transcends both decaying structures and 50’s era ugliness. This blog is about seeking an authentic faith that is expressive, worshipful, artistic, and transformative.
Starting out in Midland, MI attending Holy Family Episcopal Church, Drew attended seminary at Huron University College. He served as a seminarian intern at St. John’s in Saginaw, MI, curate at St. David’s in Lansing, MI, and assistant rector at St. Paul’s in Newnan, GA. His current position, as Rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, meant a return to Eastern Michigan and a great community on the St. Clair River. Drew has blogged several places, including drewdowns.net. A popular post about youth ministry was picked up by Building Faith.
