St. Bede's Episcopal Church in Menlo Park has a new rector, Reverend Daniel Spors, according to a recent announcement from the church.
Spors began the role online on Feb. 1 and moved to Menlo Park from Virginia in mid-February. Most recently, he worked as Assistant to the Rector of Saint Peter's Episcopal Church in Arlington, Virginia.
He is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. He received a Master's of Divinity from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary in Michigan and his undergraduate degree in Anglican Studies at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
He worked as a hospital chaplain for several years before he was ordained as an Episcopal priest.
He and his wife Ashley enjoy camping, hiking and rock climbing outdoors.
"The members of St. Bede's are very happy to have Dan on board and look forward to the future with him as our rector," said Sue Sartor, who co-chaired the search committee, in an email.
