Reverend J. Sierra Reyes

Rector

The Reverend J. Sierra Reyes is the Rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Denver. She is the first woman and person of color to lead the church in its 129-year history. Prior to accepting the call to St. Luke’s, she was the associate rector of Christ Church in Savannah, Georgia, the first house of worship established in the state of Georgia. She is an alumna of Agnes Scott College, Harvard Divinity School, and the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

Reverend Reyes is passionate about theological education and liturgy through the prism of beloved community. She serves on the Board of Trustees for Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary and as a member of the Episcopal Church’s Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music. Beyond the parish, she serves as a board member at the St. Francis Center, a refuge for men and women experiencing homelessness in Denver.

Her highest calling is the gift of parenting a courageous toddler alongside her husband Rudy, a doctoral student at the University of Denver/Iliff School of Theology.
