  • The Reverend Jason Cox, Rector

    Jason has served as rector of St. Luke's since December 2019. Before coming to St. Luke's, Jason served in many different roles as Senior Associate Rector at St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. 

    Jason began his ministry as a church musician in the Diocese of Texas. Soon after college, he felt called to give back and served for a year in the Episcopal Urban Intern Program (EUIP) in Los Angeles, working with the homeless in a transitional housing facility on L.A.’s skid row. This transformational experience helped Jason discern a call to ordained ministry, and after studying at Virginia Theological Seminary, he returned to Los Angeles as the program director of EUIP (now Jubilee Year LA). 

    Jason writes, "My ministry is focussed on building strong, connected faith communities equipped to make a difference in the world. I believe Jesus calls us to expand God’s reign of justice and peace for all people. The worship, community building, and faith formation we do at church should send us out to work for God’s vision of a world transformed by love."

  • The Reverend Mike Reddig, Priest Associate

    Born and raised in the Midwest (North Dakota), Mike joined the Air Force after undergraduate school at the University of Jamestown. In the Air Force Mike managed customer service operations (dining/lodging/recreation/shopping/mortuary affairs) at base command, and finally at the Pentagon level, from where he retired in 1996.

    After the Air Force, Mike taught school in suburban Washington DC for a couple of years before attending Virginia Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 2002, and served churches on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He retired again in 2012 and moved with his wife Judith to San Francisco to be near their two children and their spouses. 

    Per Reverend Mike, "I’m grateful to be associated with such a vibrant congregation with such a rich history. It’s a pleasure to be able to sing in the choir with Steve and the rest of the St. Luke’s musicians, and I've really enjoyed getting to know the good people of St. Luke’s."   

  • Steve Repasky, Director of Music

    Steve Repasky is our Director of Music.  He previously served seven years as Associate Music Director at St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church and nearly thirty years as Director of Music at St. Patrick Church.  Steve is also a partner in the company that maintains, repairs, and cares for our wonderful Aeolian-Skinner organ — Hupalo & Repasky Pipe Organs, LLC, of San Leandro.  Mr. Repasky holds a bachelor of music degree in organ performance from YSU as well as a master's degree from UC Berkeley.  Steve is an active member in the American Guild of Organists, the Organ Historical Society, and the American Institute of Organ Builders. 

  • Birgit Jacobsen, Parish Administrator

    Long-time parishioner and friend of the parish, Birgit Jacobsen, became our Parish Administrator in December of 2014.  Birgit had devoted her career to running her own business as a designer and decorator (she painted the stars above St. Luke's high altar in the chancel and redesigned the Trinity Chapel to name just two projects) and in 2014 decided to turn her volunteer work for the church into a ministry.  One cannot "work" in the church without it becoming a calling.  Birgit is a valued member of our staff, committed to the success and ongoing operation of St. Luke's Parish.
