Brandon Smee

I am a second-year MDiv student at Princeton Theological Seminary, and I have been a part of the Episcopal Anglican Student Fellowship at the seminary and have attended ECP and Trinity Church over the last year. I grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, and I moved to Waco, Texas in 2013 to study Religion and Biblical Studies at Baylor University. While I was there I discovered the Anglican tradition and joined the Episcopal Church just before starting seminary. I am excited to learn and serve at Trinity Church this year!

Sam Stephens

I was born and raised on the great plains of Kansas (still no one can convince me that rolling clouds and wheat fields as far as the eye can see are not beautiful). I moved to Denver Colorado in 2013 where I began my undergraduate studies in Theology and Biblical Studies at Colorado Christian University. Upon graduating, I took a break from the academic life and moved home to Wichita, Kansas where I worked at Emprise bank for the year. I started my M.Div. at Princeton Seminary in August of 2018. Concerning my church background, I was brought up in the United Methodist Church but began attending the Episcopal Church in 2015. I was then confirmed in November of 2017 through St. James Church in Wichita, KS. When I am not reading or writing for class, I enjoy all things coffee. I work at Sakrid Coffee Roasters on Nassau Street, so if you don’t see me on Sunday, please do stop by the coffee shop and say hi! I would love to chat. I’m incredibly excited to be a part of the Trinity family and for all that is in store for us in this coming year. Grace and peace Trinity.
