Brad Eubanks, chaplain
preferred pronouns: he, him, his
Brad came to the Canterbury Episcopal Campus Ministry in Flagstaff in October of 2013. He grew up in Missouri City, Texas, a strangely named suburb of Houston (ask him sometime if you want to know why it’s named that). As cradle Episcopalians do, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas Lutheran University in Theology/Youth Ministry, minoring in Psychology, with a Certificate in Leadership Studies. He then went on to receive a Master of Education degree in Student Affairs in Higher Education (Counseling and Guidance) from Texas State University.
Brad is married to the amazing, the marvelous, Rachel Eubanks-Rhoades, who works at the Museum of Northern Arizona. Together, they are parents to two adorable felines, Scarlet and Lotus.
This is Brad’s eighth year in college ministry, and his fifth at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Although always a Texan, since his arrival here in Arizona, he has worked “diligently” to build a warm and welcoming spiritual community for his students (We all know he’s happier here anyways).
Brad loves working with the students, faculty, and staff of Northern Arizona University, and considers it a privilege to be called their chaplain.
