Michael Pullen, Verger            

I'm a Fellow in the Vergers Guild of the Episcopal Church.  I joined St. Stephens in 1997 and have served as an Eucharistic Minister, Beyond the Altar Eucharistic Minister, Vestry, Usher, Lector, and Rector Search Committee.  I completed DOCC, Disciples of Christ in Community, in 2005 and graduated from Education for Ministry (EFM) in 2015.  I have participated on several discernment committees for those seeking the priesthood.  On the Diocesan level, I currently serve as the Secretary to Convention for the Diocese of Northwest Texas.  In 2007/08, I served on the Bishop Search Committee.  In 2015, I booked a trip to Washington D.C. for the installation of our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry.  Just before the trip, I was blessed to have received a ticket, through a lottery, to sit inside the National Cathedral for service.  After the service, I was able to meet Bishop Curry.  This day was one of my most favorite events in my lifetime.
