St. Paul's, Summerville, Welcomes Jeffords as New Rector
The church is adjusting its schedule of services so everyone in the congregation will have an opportunity to hear the new senior pastor preach.
“I’m excited about this fresh new start,” said Jeffords, 48, a South Carolina native who received his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina, his master’s in divinity from Duke University Divinity School and an Anglican Studies Diploma from Virginia Theological School.
The new rector looks forward to helping St. Paul’s, Summerville, press on toward a future that is “biblically-centered, Christ-centered and Holy Spirit driven.”

Diocese Affirms Biblical Position on Holy Matrimony
On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that "all states must license marriage between two people of the same sex" and "recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state." Despite this change, the Diocese of South Carolina continues to affirm the historic position of the Christian Church: that God has ordained two states of life for His people, singleness or Holy Matrimony – the joining together of one man and one woman into a holy union. By affirming this position, we stand firmly under the authority of Holy Scripture, in continuity with the two thousand year history of the church, and in accord with the vast majority of Christians around the world. Therefore, it is clear that while the Supreme Court may be changing the civil definition of marriage, it has no authority over Holy Matrimony and the Church’s blessing of the union between husband and wife.
