It is with great pleasure that we announce the formation of an Anglican Mission in Los Gatos.  St. Michael’s is the tentative name, subject to Archbishop Duncan’s approval.

Mr. Jess Guy is the leader for this new mission.  Jess is a retired ATF agent, and will soon retire from his second career with the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office.  Jess first felt a call to ordained ministry 30 years ago.  Now he is responding by organizing a new mission in the community where he lives.

St. Michael’s will have a particular focus on the needs of criminal justice system.  This focus will extend to all within the system.  It will include people who work in the system and those who are in prison.  This focus reflects Jess’ heart for the imprisoned and those who serve our society.

Jess’ prayer life went deep while he ran SWAT teams for the ATF.  Now as a church planter we are confident that he will bring the same intensity of prayer to this important work.  Way to go Jess!
