The Rev. Emily R. Hylden, Interim vicar

A native Midwesterner, Mother Emily has lived in the south for her entire adult life; she met her husband, Father Jordan, while in graduate school in North Carolina. She's served churches in Durham, North Carolina, St. Louis, Missouri, and Columbia, South Carolina, as well as a stint in upstate New York during her M.Div training, at Christ Church in Cooperstown.

She came to the Anglican tradition in 2009 because of its beautiful worship, having been raised in the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Around the same time she was confirmed, she discerned a call to ordained ministry and promptly fell in love with parish ministry. Contact her at ehylden@stuaugustinesoakcliff.org

The Rev. Canon Jordan L. Hylden, Associate

Father Jordan Hylden serves as Canon Theologian for the diocese. In this capacity, he has care for theological education in three main areas: continuing education for our clergy, theological education for our lay leaders and particularly for lay catechists, and Christian formation for our parishes.  Before coming to Dallas last year, he served a parish in South Carolina.  He is a frequent contributor to The Living Church and other publications, and has taught at Lutheran Southern Theological Seminary and Saint Louis University.  He's finishing a dissertation in theology and ethics from Duke, but hopefully not for much longer.

Jordan is from rural North Dakota, exactly 1,224 miles due north of Oak Cliff.  He loves reading, good conversations, Duke basketball, and spending time with Emily and their baby boy Charles.  In his spare time... wait, what's spare time? Contact him at jhylden@edod.org
