It is with great joy and excitement that the vestry of The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection announces The Reverend Liz Tichenor as our next Rector. We are delighted that she has accepted the call to join our Community of Faith in ministry here in Pleasant Hill. 
The Reverend Liz Tichenor comes to us from All Souls, Berkeley, where she has served as the Associate Rector since 2014. Her childhood was spread across northern New England, Iowa and Indiana. Liz returned to the Northeast for college, where she studied Spanish as an undergraduate at Dartmouth and later served there as the Episcopal campus minister. She received her Masters of Divinity at the Church Divinity School of the Pacific and a Masters of Arts in Ethics and Social Theory at the Graduate Theological Union. After seminary, Liz served as the Resident Chaplain at Camp Galilee, on the Eastern shore of Lake Tahoe, and at Trinity Episcopal Church in Reno.
The Reverend Tichenor’s first day in the office will be Tuesday, November 12th. Her first worship service at Church of the Resurrection will be on Sunday, November 17th. That same evening we will also celebrate the Fall Harvest Dinner.
