Javier is a native of the deep South: he was born and raised in San Salvador, El Salvador. When he was ten years old, he and his family moved to the Pacific Northwest. He earned his Masters of Divinity Degree at Duke Divinity School and completed his Post-Graduate Diploma in Anglican Studies at Virginia Theological Seminary. Prior to studying at Duke, Javier worked as a mental health therapist and case manager in Seattle. It was also in Seattle that he discovered the Episcopal Church.
Javier enjoys good fiction, looking over the tree line, and finding common ground in unexpected places. He would love to hear from you, whether you have been at St. Paul’s for a while or recently walked through the church doors.
