The Rev. Suzanne Smith, Priest in Charge

Aubrey Smith, Children and Youth Minister

Aubrey Smith is the children and youth minister for Grace Episcopal Church. She and her husband Michael were married at Grace on December 20th of 2014.  They have a beautiful daughter named Helen, who was born on Christmas day the following year! 

Aubrey came to Grace on the first Sunday in Advent in 2006 and immediately fell in love.  It became a place where she found God again during a time when God seemed so distant to her.  After some time, she got involved with the youth ministry as an adult volunteer and was hired as the interim youth minister in the fall of 2014.  She was called to serve the youth at another church the following spring before God called her back to Grace in the summer of 2018. In her opinion, there is no greater work than investing in our children.  She firmly believes that it is our biblical duty, it is our responsibility, and it is our honor as a church family to teach these children to know and love Christ, and she is honored to serve the children of Grace again.
