Rev. Paul Gaffney

Dear St. Luke Community,

This Sunday we welcome our friend Rev. Paul Gaffney to the pulpit. Paul is the Program Manager of the Shaw Chaplaincy Institute at the University of Redlands Graduate School of Theology. Born and raised in western PA, the son of a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Gaffney received his BA from Hiram College, where he majored in Sociology/Anthropology and minored in Music.

In 2004, Paul graduated from SFTS with a Master of Divinity degree, and in 2005, he became the sole chaplain of the Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy, providing emotional and spiritual support to people in transition. For over 15 years, he worked with the street community in San Rafael and the wider Marin County as a chaplain both with the Marin Interfaith Street Chaplaincy and with the Ritter Center.

Rev. Gaffney became the first Shaw Chaplaincy Fellow in the Certified Educator CPE Program at San Francisco Theological Seminary, and he is now an ACPE Certified Educator. Paul was ordained into Christian Ministry by the Northern California/Nevada Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Lafayette Christian Church on June 4, 2006. He also is a lay-ordained student of Taigen Leighton in the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition.

We hope to see you this Sunday!
