Fr. Michael Strachan

Fr. Michael and Family

Father Michael came to St. Dunstan’s in July of 2017 as Formation Director and will be installed as our new rector on June 3, 2018. He and his wife, Michelle, both grew up in South Florida, where they were high school sweethearts, before moving to Los Angeles in 2000 and then to Chicago in 2004. Father Michael and Michelle have two kids, Anna (6) and Joshua (4), who are the joy of his life. Father Michael was ordained as a priest on January 18, 2014 by Bishop Morales on the Feast of the Confession of St. Peter. Since then he’s served as supply clergy in many churches in the Diocese of Quincy and as the Vicar of St. John Church in Preemption, IL and Trinity Anglican Church in Monmouth, IL.

About

You don’t have to spend much time around Fr. Michael to realize that one of the things that he is passionate about is teaching Scripture to the people of God. Whether he’s teaching the youth on Wednesday night, leading the Gospel Project for adults on Sunday morning, or standing behind the pulpit, he loves to help people see the truth of Scripture in new, fresh, and life-changing ways. He has a passion for Biblical Theology, Biblical Exegesis, and Biblical Languages. He’s also a geek and a nerd in the very best sense of those words. If you want to get his attention you only need to start talking to him about Star Wars, the Lord of the Rings, or the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He loves to listen to music, especially by Derek Webb, Mumford and Sons, and Jack White, and he loves to read, especially everything by N. T. Wright.
