The Rev. Dr. Derek J. Quinn, PharmD, Deacon

Our Deacon-in-Charge was born and raised in Portage, MI, he attended Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI and graduated with an Associate of Science and a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. After graduation, he returned to Portage/Kalamazoo and practiced as a Pharmacist for thirteen years. Then, he went to the University of the South in Sewanee, TN for seminary. Upon graduation with a Master of Divinity degree, and having been Ordained a Deacon on 24 April 2022, Fr. Derek came to St. Paul’s to serve as our Deacon-in-Charge as well as being the Associate Rector for Outreach at Grace Episcopal Church in Traverse City. We all anticipate that, God willing and the people consenting, Derek will be Ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests in late Fall 2022. Derek enjoys reading, especially Science Fiction, video games, especially role-playing games, and studying languages (although he only speaks English, he has taken classes in Latin, Japanese, Biblical Greek, and Biblical Hebrew).
