The Sudanese Ministry began in the mid-1990s when a St. B’s Sunday School class prayed for God to show them a way they might minister in Africa. In short order that Sunday School ministry evolved from providing bicycles for priests in Sudan to welcoming Sudanese refugees to Nashville.
In 1998 the Sudanese began worshiping at St. B’s in Jieng, their tribal language, and English with lay pastors. In 2003, Bishop Nathaniel Garang, who was to become the acting Archbishop of Sudan, came to Nashville to ordain Gur Maror and John Awan as Episcopal priests. Both Father Gur and Father John have now returned to Sudan to serve their home country as priests and to begin a new life.
Currently, the Sudanese community is still growing at St B’s and has a weekly Sunday morning worship service in Wallace Hall at noon led by lay pastors.
