Joel MacCollam was certainly influenced in
his Ordination through the Community as a Seminary mate with
George Moses and
Bob Morris. Joe Byrne and
Bob Hansen (Lee House,
Medical Community) and Charles Foss Swanee mid 1970s.
Patricia Henking, a college friend of Joel MacCollam and me, came to live
with us for two summers while we were in Houston then went to
General Theological Seminary in NYC (where Joel and George and
Bob went) and she is now Vicar in a small Parish in Merrimack,
NH. David Upp, a lab tech at the
4th Ward Clinic is now a Methodist Minister and a Professor of
Theology in the Asian-Pacific Divinity school.
Dave Binns: Kimbrough
Beshere, Franklin Marzullo (Deacon),
Ted Tsitsilianos (Priest in Greek Orthodox Church). Paul Pratt
and Dave Teschner from the St. Peters Community.
It's good to keep in mind what happened to so many visitors who
came for weekends of renewal and received the call to serve God
in whatever capacity. What happened on the East end of Houston
those 15 years or so had world wide ramifications spiritually.
We are in no position to brag given what God had to work with
;>) But I'm just saying, we were there for the ride! And what a
Peter Lusby Taylor: Louis Newton is an ordained
Episcopal, now in New England somewhere I think.

I don't think David Gustafson is ordained but he heads up a
renowned reconciliation ministry. There's a good you tube video
of him here
Carolyn Lister Owens Wright Jack McComb's
children....John McComb (Pastor around New Braunfels), maybe
Martha McComb (I think she is a missionary).
Garth Owens came to
Redeemer having 17 years of ministry. Grady Manley...still
teaching at the Sun City Community church, Georgetown TX
Carol Kennedy: Tim Whipple is definitely an ordained
priest, Episcopal church. But he isn't actively serving.
Eric Sawyer: I just found out about the Rev. Dr.
(Cindy) Engle, who was at Redeemer for a period in the mid 80's.
She is now the Rector of St Paul's church Navasota, TX.
According to her bio on the church website, she went to England,
earning a Ph.D. from Cambridge and spent some years teaching at
Fuller, eventually making her way back to the Houston area.
Quite a surprise when I saw her on the website!
Grace Kosloski: Isn't Grover Newman a Methodist pastor?
And perhaps Lisa Tegby and Arne Soderback are Lutheran pastors?
They were guests at Woodland Park when I was there, and I've
remembered them all these years. And of course the rabbi from
Israel who spent months teaching at Redeemer. Moshe? If we could
remember names of guests, who touched our lives briefly, I'm
sure our list would be much longer. Phil Bradshaw?
Peter Lusby Taylor: Yes Grace, Lisa
Tegby is ordained, she lived on Cumbrae for a year back
in the seventies and heads up a ministry team of 35 in Ålidhem
Umeå which is pretty far up north in Sweden, is also a
psychotherapist. Many of the Swedish contingent who lived at
Cumbrae or PG are fully employed by the church in Sweden in
various roles. For example Dan Elenius and Goran Wickstrom are
both administrators in different places Dan in Gothenburg, Goran
in Norrkoping. Erik Hansson is ordained at least deacon when I
last heard about him, he was at Post Green for perhaps two or
three years round about 1978-80 ish He is also based in Lisa
Tegby's parish, in the city not too where Ruth and Häkan live.
Arne Söderbäck is definitely
ordained, and is kyrkoherde ( parish priest) in Lima not far
from Rättvik where the Fisherfolk used to go. He was also on
Cumbrae in the seventies. According to the Swedish papers he
resigned in March last year as priest in charge of a mountain
church in protest at the way the bishop and diocese were
managing it, however I am not sure if this has affected his
relationship with his main congregation, probably not. Nice
picture of him here
