St. Michael’s in the Hills welcomed a new Priest-in-Charge, the Rev. Foster M. Mays, in July 2019. Foster came to us from Epiphany Episcopal Church in Sedan, Kansas, where he served from 2013 until July 2019. Foster earned his Master of Divinity from the University of the South, School of Theology in 2013, and prior to his calling to the ministry he had a career in trust administration and private banking. He has also served our country as a Naval Flight Officer and an Intelligence Officer in the US Navy and Naval Reserve.

Foster’s mission is “To help all people recognize the presence of the Divine in their lives: the power of Almighty God, the revealed love of Jesus Christ, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit as experienced in worship, Word, open
inquiry, and prayer.” In addition to serving his mission, Foster is married to Linda, and they have two adult sons and a golden doodle.
