Brad Eubanks 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.
Cari States-Codding is the program coordinator for LCM. She's from Modesto, CA, and she started taking her parents to a WELS church when she was nine. Somehow, Cari stumbled into the Campus Ministry Center and found LCM and, by extension, the ELCA. She has been a student with LCM since spring of 2012, and has been employed with them since July of 2016. Cari graduated from NAU in 2014 with a BS in political science and a BS in psychology, and is currently in an ethnic studies graduate certificate program at NAU. Somewhere along the way she got married to Dwayne States-Codding, a fellow graduate of NAU and an active LCMer. She has had an internship with NAU's Health Promotions, helped formed and interned at NAU's LGBTQ Office of Resources and Support, been a counselor for Collegetown (an absolutely amazing spring break program that you should definitely ask her about) for five years, and was a mental health tech in Flagstaff Medical Center's in-patient Behavioral Health Unit for two years. Gidget, an adorably fluffy poodle, always accompanies her but, because she's often been told that she has too many pictures of and with Gidget, here's a picture of her with Thor, a temperamental cat who only looks sweet and doesn't care about his (or any) humans.
