Brad came to us in October of 2013. He grew up in Missouri City, Texas, a strangely named suburb of Houston (ask him sometime if you want to know why it’s named that). As cradle Episcopalians do, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas Lutheran University in Theology/Youth Ministry, minoring in Psychology, with a Certificate in Leadership Studies. He then went on to receive a Master of Education degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education (Counseling and Guidance) from Texas State University, and a Certificate in Pastoral Care Education from the Seminary of the Southwest.
Brad is married to the amazing, the marvelous, Rachel Eubanks-Rhoades, who works at the Museum of Northern Arizona. Together, they are parents to two adorable felines, Scarlet and Lotus.
This is Brad’s eleventh year in campus ministry, and his eighth at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Although always a Texan, since his arrival here in Arizona, he has worked to build a warm and welcoming spiritual community for our students.
Allie grew up in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America in the North Woods of Minnesota. She attended Augsburg University in Minneapolis, studying History and Religion. While at Augsburg she spent her summers working at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp in Montana, creating a passion for nurturing spiritual enrichment in youth and embedding a love of hiking. She went on to spend two years living and working at Holden Village, a small Lutheran community in the North Cascades of Washington State. There, she grew a deep love for community and compost. In the Fall of 2018, she took the call of Youth Director at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran in Flagstaff, AZ, and then in the Fall of 2019 became the Program Coordinator for LCM|Canterbury as well.
She is excited to be a part of the LCM|Canterbury community, and is very much honored to be working with the student and staff body.
LCM|Canterbury is the emerging identity of Canterbury Episcopal Campus Ministry in Flagstaff and NAU Lutheran Campus Ministry. Beginning in 2017, these two ministries began a life together as LCM|Canterbury, creating a shared Lutheran and Episcopal Campus Ministry presence in Flagstaff.
The ministry is jointly governed by two boards, along with the leadership and guidance of the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona and the Grand Canyon Synod of the ELCA.
