Drew joined St. Mark's Cathedral as both curate and youth minister in 2017. He is a native of Saginaw, MI. Drew holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Saginaw Valley State University, a Master of Divinity from Bexley-Seabury Seminary, and is currently studying church history on a part-time basis online through the Institute of Lutheran Theology. During his time in seminary, he served as a youth counselor for the Summer Seminary Sampler, a program for young people to think theologically and vocationally about their faith and how they encounter God in their lives. Drew served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 2007-2015 and is currently endorsed by the Episcopal Church Office of Armed Forces Ministry.
