David S. Robinson, Rector

Dave Robinson has served as Rector at Saint Matthew’s since 1985. Raised in Western Pennsylvania, he traveled east for theological studies at Princeton Seminary and The General Seminary in New York City. During this time, it was the unusual combination of youth work and prison ministry that solidified Dave’s call to parish ministry in the Episcopal Church. Prior to Saint Matthew’s, Dave served congregations in State College and Bellefonte, Pa.

Dave and his wife Lynn, who volunteers as Director of Children’s Education at Saint Matthew’s, have two grown children. Dave remains an enthusiastic if limited cyclist and guitarist and likes to read anything from Theology to Science Fiction Novels.

Jay B. Walton, Assistant to the Rector

 Jay Walton starts his ordained ministry at Saint Matthew's after recently graduating from Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California.  While in seminary, Jay served as seminarian at St. Alban's Church, Albany, CA and La Iglesia Episcopal de Santiago, a Latino mission of the Diocese of California.  He volunteered in homeless ministries, food pantries, and Episcopal Charities.  Prior to seminary, Jay served as a mentor for Education for Ministry both in parishes and in Graterford State Correctional Institution, as well as acting as the diocesan coordinator and is currently a member of the Mentor Training Network.  Jay has a fourteen-year old son, Ryan, who lives in Tucson, AZ.  In his spare time, Jay enjoys reading, cooking, and spending time at the shore.
