Our Church Leadership

 

Our Church thrives because of the energy and commitment of the people who lead it. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

 

 Rev. Jennifer Fraser, Pastor 

Rev. Jennifer Fraser joined St. Andrew’s as pastor in December 2020 after serving as interim pastor at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church in Phoenix and associate pastor at Gilbert Presbyterian Church in Gilbert, Arizona. Her ministry focuses on the gathered community --- how the people of God live and work together through both harmony or discordance toward the ends of creative worship, meaningful mission, and spiritual transformation. She earned an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary, a BA and MA in Literature from Arizona State University, and has extensive conflict mediation training. She is an avid hiker and biker; loves the ocean, poetry, and working with children. Most importantly, she has been married to Jojo for 30 years, and together they are the proud parents of three amazing (almost) adult children.

 


   

 SMalloyRev. Suzanne Malloy - Parish Associate (Community Ministries) 

Rev. Suzanne Malloy entered the ministry after completing a 31-year career in law enforcement.  Her long service in the crisis field prepared her for her current ministry as an on-call hospital chaplain. In addition to serving the hospital population, Suzanne serves locally as the Coordinator of Faith-Based Initiatives for the Santa Barbara County VOAD  (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), and Disaster Spiritual Care Supervisor for the American Red Cross Central California region. Nationally, Suzanne is a member of the National Response Team for Presbyterian Disaster assistance, and has offered a ministry of presence at a variety of disasters, both natural and human-caused. Suzanne maintains connections with the UCSB campus community as a clergy mentor with Progressive Christians at UCSB. Suzanne has called St. Andrew’s her spiritual home for almost twenty years, and feels blessed to serve as Parish Associate. She is the grateful mother of Garrett, who is preparing for his own servant career in the field of medicine.  When she isn’t deployed, you can find Suzanne on the local hiking trails with her canine companion, Tory, or cheering on her beloved Green Bay Packers.

 

 

 mullerRev. Judith Muller - Parish Associate (Pastoral Ministry)
