Priest In Charge

Jason Poling

  Send Email

St. Andrew’s now has a priest. God has been at work guiding your vestry and Fr. Jason Poling to this exact point in time. Fr. Poling comes to us from Reisterstown, MD. Before becoming an Episcopal priest, he planted the New Hope Community Church in Pikesville and was the Senior Pastor for some 14 years. Most recently he was working with Bishop Sutton to develop a new Episcopal congregation in Catonsville. He is married to his wife of 21 years, Mary, a musician and they have two teenage daughters.

In our first interview, one of his initial statements was, he loves Christ and lives his life to serve Him and his church and has already demonstrated his unique ability to bring together folks from different theological backgrounds. We are convinced that Fr. Poling has been called by God to be our priest to lead us to do His work in our little corner of the world. Join us on Sunday, 20 January for his first Sunday with St. Andrew’s.

Although she came to Anne Arundel County with her parents more than fifty years ago, Joan still claims to be a proud Baltimorean, since that is where she was born.  A graduate of University of Maryland Baltimore County, she is the mother of three and grandmother of five, in whom she delights. 

For over thirty years she has served as organist or music director at Methodist, Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Lutheran churches, all here in the County.  During the last seven years she has volunteered for the Dyslexia Tutoring Program, headquartered in Baltimore, having been trained to use the Orton/Gillingham approach to teach learning disabled children and adults to read.  When needed she has used her skills as a volunteer at Bodkin Elementary School for the last eleven years.  For the last four years she has led Bible Studies for participants from different churches and denominations. 

In addition, she has directed a summer camp program for grandparents and grandchildren at the West River Center in south county for ten years.  She travels as often as possible, most daringly white water rafting through the Grand Canyon for eight days and experiencing the Aboriginal culture in Australia.
