The Rev. Dr. Jane Maynard was called to St. Mark’s on November 20, 2022, to serve as our Interim Rector while we search for that special person who feels called to be our more permanent Rector (sometime in late 2023 or early 2024). We are very blessed to have her at St. Mark’s.


Before coming to St. Mark’s, Jane served four congregations in the Diocese of Olympia: most recently as an interim at St. Thomas, Medina in 2021-2022 where she had also served as interim in 2008-09. Jane worked as an interim at Good Samaritan in Sammamish and Epiphany in Seattle and as rector at Christ Church in Tacoma. Besides her work in parishes, Jane has a long and varied history in ministry. She served as a hospital chaplain in Boise and San Francisco, a pastoral counselor in Claremont, and a seminary professor at The Church Divinity School of the Pacific. While at CDSP, Jane taught courses in pastoral care and, as the Director of Field Education, placed and supported students preparing for ordination in parishes, chaplaincies, and agency ministries throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Jane moved to Seattle in 2003 to serve as the interim Dean of the Diocese of Olympia’s School of Theology and Ministry.


Jane holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, an M.A. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Illinois in Urbana, an M.Div. from the Church Divinity

School of the Pacific, an M.T.S. in Pastoral Counseling, and a Ph.D. in Religion and Personality from the Claremont School of Theology. Jane’s dissertation research focused on the writings of Julian of Norwich as a resource for survivors of traumatic loss resulting from AIDS.

Jane is married to Jim Treyens. They share a love of reading, traveling, and choral music. Together, they have three grown children: Dan, a fisheries biologist and whitewater enthusiast; Beckie, a renewable energy and energy efficiency expert and Marc, a network administrator with a passion for community service. They share their home with Coco, a one-year-old Havanese.

When she’s not singing in the choir or in the church office, you’ll usually find Kim Griswell-Lowry at a desk or in a café, writing. She has written about everything from exploding toilets to Thurgood Marshall and is the author of three picture books about a persistent pink pig, Rufus Leroy Williams III: Rufus Goes to School, Rufus Goes to Sea (both Oregon Book Awards finalists), and Rufus Blasts Off!. For twenty years, Kim worked in senior editorial positions in children’s and educational publishing, including at Highlights for Children, where she served as Coordinating Editor and last eye on every part of the magazine. Kim moved to the Rogue Valley from Portland, Oregon in 2011 to take the position of developmental editor of children’s books at Portable Press in Ashland. One of the questions she asked during her job interview was, “Are there any choirs in the valley?” The answer, of course, was yes! After considering the choices, Kim joined the Rogue Valley Peace Choir and that is where she met Rob Lowry. She’s been following him to whichever choir he leads ever since, and that brought her to St. Mark’s, not once, but twice! Kim and Rob feel extremely blessed to be back in the Valley with their St. Mark’s family.

St. Mark's Vestry

The Vestry of St. Mark's, as with any Episcopal Church, serves as the Board of Directors for us as a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Rector is the President and CEO as well as the Board Chair of the corporation. The Senior Warden is the Board Vice-Chair and "Rector's Warden," the Junior Warden is the "Peoples' Warden", and the Treasurer is the Finance Chair. Vestry members are elected at our Annual Meeting in January of each year for three year terms, after which they must take a year off before being eligible to run again. The Vestry also shares with the Rector in leading the spiritual life of the congregation, discerning God's direction for the organization.
