He came to St. Philip’s from St. John’s Cathedral in Denver. He is the author of a book on young adult ministry titled Yearning: Authentic Transformation, Young Adults, and the Church. His wife, Dr. Karrie Cummings Hendrickson, is a researcher for Yale-New Haven Hospital. They have two sons, Nikolas and Brayden, and are the proud companions of Becket (a dolorous basset hound), Penelope (a fearless dachshund), Cuthbert (a once indomitable raccoon fighting cat), and Marshmallow (a rotund cat prone to wild fits of napping). The whole family enjoys lots of hiking, reading, and writing.

Deacons belong to one of three historic orders of ordained ministry—Bishops, Priests, and Deacons. In the Diocese of Arizona, Deacons serve in a parish setting by mutual agreement of the Bishop, the Rector, and the Deacon. All of them assist with leading worship, occasionally preach, and offer significant pastoral ministry. In addition, each is required to have a ministry that helps to make connections between the members of the parish and the community in which we live. The Deacons serve without financial compensation.
