About Us

Sr. Pastor – Rev. Dr. Bill Crowell

I am so happy to be the senior pastor at St. Paul’s!  I am a minister who enjoys social justice work and interfaith endeavors.  I’ve lived in Tulsa for 11 years and have a wide network of friends and colleagues who are like-minded.  I have always enjoyed doing ministry in ways that are outside the box.  I’m married to Linda and have two stepsons, Bryan and Ben.  A Scripture that I live my life by is from Genesis 1:31 – “God saw everything he had made, and, indeed, it was very good.”  We are created to live life fully, be kind and thoughtful of others, and do good work in the world.

Assoc. Pastor – Rev. Travis Ewton

Hey all, I lead Bar Church Tulsa, which is an faith community for folks who have been turned off by traditional church. I have been in Tulsa for 6 years and can truly say that St. Paul’s is a unique gem in the Cherry Street community.  My wife, Meagan, and I have a passion for social justice, believing that the gospel of Jesus is about bringing freedom and wholeness to all. Our daughter, Jocelyn, loves animals, dance, and art. A favorite verse of mine is Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.”

Community Outreach – Deaconess Sandy Wickberg
 
After a lifetime in the church I discovered, at age 50, that God was “in love” with me. I wanted  to love God back. Eventually I stumbled on the Office of Deaconess and Home Missioner. Deaconess/Home Missioners are lay men and women consecrated to lifetime service in ministries of love, justice and service. Our motto is:“I serve neither for gratitude nor reward but from gratitude and love; my reward is that I may serve.” The perfect way to love God back! After some seminary and deaconess training, I found myself here at St. Paul’s looking for ways to reach outside the walls to our very unique community.

Music Director – Steven Law

I have been in music ministry since 1994, and have been the director of the St. Paul’s Chancel Choir since the fall of 2008.  One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the gift of music, and it is such a joy to be able to experience God through musical expression during worship.  The St. Paul’s Chancel Choir is made up of awesome people that simply enjoy meeting each week for music, fellowship, and lifting each other up on our faith journey.  We heartily welcome new people who share our passion for music in worship to come and check us out!  “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before God’s presence with singing.” Psalm 100: 1-2

Manna Meals Coordinator – Bev Stites
In March of 2003 my daughter and I went on a Youth Mission Trip to Houston. During that week we worked in various non-profits that helped folks young and old.  My goal in returning home was to find a place where I could make a difference.  Through a friend of a friend I found Manna Meals! At Manna Meals we provide a nutritious lunch every Friday to approximately 175 people.  This program has operated by donations for over 22 years and is staffed entirely by volunteers from our own congregation, other churches, and the community. We would love for you to come and volunteer any Friday and learn more about this program. “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” – Matthew 26:40
