About Me

Me: a while ago!

Hi! My name is Paul Rider. I was born in New York, but raised in Texas and Arkansas. In the 80s I received my B.M. and M.M. degrees in trombone performance from the University of Arkansas and taught in the Music Department at South Dakota State University in Brookings. After attending seminary in Wisconsin, I served congregations in South and North Dakota before coming to Minnesota in the winter of 2000. I've been serving an Episcopal congregation in greater Minnesota since 2002. Having been a priest in the Church for over twenty years I especially enjoy teaching Bible classes, preaching, and working on issues of social/economic justice. In my free time I enjoy hiking, cycling, and watching British Comedies with my companion bird, Togo, a Senegal Parrot.
