Spencer Brown and Janie Koch Ordination

Spencer Brown and Janie Koch Ordination

On the evening of Friday, February 16th, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Spencer Wade Brown and Janie Layne Koch were ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons by Bishop Edward J. Konieczny.

This beautiful service engaged all in the commitment and celebration of Spencer and Janie, as they embarked upon the next step in their journey.

Beginning the service, members of Spencer and Janie’s respective communities presented them for ordination, followed by members of the congregation joining together in prayer for them both.

After an inspiring sermon from the Rev. Kristi Maulden, Associate Rector at Trinity, the service continued with the Consecration of the Deacon.

Spencer and Janie knelt before the Bishop, as he laid his hands upon their heads and ushered them into their new role as Deacons. Spencer and Janie were then warmly and joyfully congratulated by the congregation. The worship service continued with both new Deacons serving to distribute Communion.


Deacons Spencer and Janie will now complete their seminary education and serve for several months as transitional Deacons before being ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests.
This celebration was a joyful occasion, not just for Spencer and Janie, but also for our diocese as a whole.

Please join us in congratulating our newest Deacons, Spencer Wade Brown and Janie Layne Koch!
