We welcome our new rector! Rev. Rob Neville
Rob Neville, born in the Midwest grew up in upstate New York. The grandson and great grandson of the Congregational Ministers, Rob was raised in the Roman Catholic tradition. Acting as an Altar boy during the week and singing in the choir on Sundays, he developed a deep love and respect of liturgy. Rob has had many careers during his life ranging from Artist to Rescue Worker and Engineer in Silicon Valley. After leaving the Church in his late teens, he explored many avenues of spiritual development and he finally returned to the Episcopal Church in his early fifties, some 13 years ago. Rob was raised up to the priesthood from St. Andrew’s Saratoga, CA. He attended CDSP in Berkeley, CA starting in 2009 and was ordained and spent his first year as a priest at St. John’s in Aptos in 2013. For the past four years, Rob has been serving as Rector at Christ Church Tashua in Trumbull, CT and simultaneously Priest in Charge at Grace Church also in Trumbull. He joined St. Andrew’s Ben Lomond in September of 2018. He brings his love of music, liturgy and caring for people to join a living community of faith, the little piece of the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement in the Redwoods.
