CLERGY AND STAFF
The Rev’d Stephanie Jenkins
The Rev’d Stephanie Jenkins, Rector of Saint Andrew’s - Lawton, grew up in southwest Oklahoma, with both sides
of her family shaped by their Oklahoma roots. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma - BA Sociology (2000) and Episcopal Divinity School – Cambridge, MA - Master of Divinity (2010). Ordination followed July 2010.
She has served as a curate, Saint Luke’s-Bartlesville, OK; assistant, Saint Peter’s-Weston, MA; Episcopal Diocese
of Kansas - Campus Missioner, in addition to mothering Henry, age 9, and Cora age 7.
Oklahoma’s red dirt, open skies, rolling plains, strong winds, springtime storms followed by summer heat and
the welcome cool winds of fall are home like no place else to Rev’d Stephanie. Growing up, she was shaped by
the love filled community of Christ followers worshipping together at All Saints’ Episcopal Church at the corner of
9th & Cedar in Duncan in all their theological variety. There she experienced firsthand God’s unconditional love
Were it not for the faithful at the corner of 9th & Cedar in Duncan, she’s not sure where else she would have gotten such an expansive experience of God’s all encompassing love growing up in rural southwest Oklahoma. This way of loving remains a crucial voice in our corner of the world, and is her greatest aspiration for Saint Andrew’s - to be an inclusive Christ centered community open to the power of the Holy Spirit right here in the Lawton/Ft Sill community.
Alli was born and raised in Lawton and graduated from MacArthur High School in 2016.
Her mother first worked at Saint Andrew’s for several years, and was looking to spend more
time at home. As it happened, after training Alli to fill in during her recovery from surgery,
we realized the transition to a well trained administrator had already occurred. Alli has experience with finances and office administration. Alli loves the peaceful and accepting work environment at St. Andrew's. In her spare time, she loves to crochet and paint.

Since 1985, David has worked in the behavioral health field; currently David serves as a Transitional Case Manager at GEO group.
