My name is Jake Lee. I'm a Boise native who learned to appreciate Idaho only after getting out and seeing what the rest of the world has to offer. Prior to becoming a priest, my career was split between technology startups and nonprofit organizations. I care deeply about the Church serving the World and participating in the reconciliation of all creation to the Creator. My love of the Word and God's Spirit led me to the Anglican Communion, where I fell that I have truly found my people. I enjoy travel, writing, reading and getting involved in the Boise community.
I first learned about God through my Polish mother in the Roman Catholic tradition. In high school, I attended a group called Young Life and heard that being a Christian was not about following rules, but about having a real relationship with God through His son, Jesus Christ.
Being an artist, Jess was drawn to the rhythms, seasons , beauty and depth of the Anglican church and it's liturgy. In her words: “Music is a vital part of worship but is only one piece of our expression. When music is intertwined with confession, prayers, the Eucharistic Table and the the Word, we find these elements becoming a unified song of worship.”
Jess and her husband Sean grew up in Southern California. By faith they moved to Idaho in 2007. They have 4 children and are passionate about family, missions and ecumenism.
Coming from a life of addiction, depression and abuse, Jess has a distinct perspective on the freedom one has when made new in Christ. Her life has been a testimony of God's grace and forgiveness.
