Please join us in welcoming Rudy Logan, who begins work as the Interim Missioner for Equity and Justice on June 27th. Rudy comes to us from IMPACT Silver Spring, where he served as the East County Network Builder. His work included organizing events and trainings centering on antiracism, conflict resolution and local Maryland Black history; advocacy efforts addressing racial disparities in Montgomery County Public School with special emphasis on promoting robust mental health resource options; and facilitating literature programs focused on race, identity, community, criminal justice, and the relation between interpersonal life and social advocacy with age groups ranging from 10 to 35.
A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, Rudy, strives to orient the spaces he walks in toward antiracism and transformative justice. He believes it is imperative to ground movement work in interpersonal care for the other and finds this focus fosters the deeper conversation, trust, knowledge sharing and relationship building requisite for sustained advocacy in ministry and the larger community.
Rudy’s experience as a Christian minister and justice advocate will bring a holistic lens to his work as Interim Missioner for Equity and Justice. Bishop Mariann writes, “From our first conversation, I was impressed with Rudy’s thoughtfulness, gentle spirit, and desire to pursue justice within Christian community.”
Rudy shares, “I’m excited to join the Episcopal Diocese of Washington! I look forward to getting to know the community and exploring what justice looks like together.”
