The Rev. Shelly Fayette
Rector of Christ Episcopal Church
Episcopal Campus Minister to the UW
The Rev. Shelly Fayette grew up in rural eastern Washington, and spent summers in Sitka, Alaska, crewing on her dad's salmon troller. She graduated from Seattle University summa cum laude with...
a degree in Theology and Religious Studies, and worked as a nanny before attending Union Theological Seminary in New York City. She returned to the West Coast upon graduation in 2009, serving as intern to the Diocese of Eastern Oregon and as an associate at two large churches in Vancouver, WA and Salem, OR. She landed joyfully at Christ Church in the fall of 2014 and could not be happier serving this community of justice-minded, inquisitive, caring people. She and her brilliant organizer partner Aaron Scott, and their toddler Moses, enjoy reading, movies, and gentle hiking.
