Poulson Reed began serving as Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Day School in August of 2009. As Rector, he is the spiritual leader of both church and school. He works closely with the church Vestry, staff, day school Board of Trustees, Head of School, and many volunteers and committees. With our other leaders, Father Reed sets and articulates the vision for All Saints’, encouraging and equipping our community for ministry that makes a difference. He has a passion for our rich Anglican tradition, and for inviting others into discipleship: deepening our relationship with Jesus Christ through the ancient practices of praying, learning, serving and connecting. He especially loves liturgy for all ages, traditional church music, teaching the faith, and pastoral care. Father Reed is a 2015 Piper Fellow of the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.
Before coming to All Saints’, Father Reed served at Saint John’s Cathedral in Denver for more than seven years as a canon, and eventually as Sub-Dean. At Saint John’s, he helped found an alternative, seeker-friendly Sunday evening Eucharistic community called “The Wilderness,” and worked with the Sudanese community as they became a special congregation of the diocese and a Jubilee ministry. Father Reed graduated from an Episcopal school, St. Christopher’s in Richmond, Virginia. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Virginia, with a double major in English and Religious Studies, and he attended seminary at Yale Divinity School.
He is married to Megan Reed, a classically trained tuba player and teacher. They have three boys, David, Thomas and Matthew.
