The Rev. Robin Reeves
The Rev. Robin Kaye Reeves came to Texas City in June of 2011 and goes by Pastor Robin. She arrived in time to help plan and celebrate St. George's 100 years of serving God and the people of Texas City. God has given her a heart for the youth in our city since arriving.
Pastor Robin is on a mission to Host, Connect and Communicate God's transformational love to all the world.
She and the members of St. George's are about sharing Hope in the world whether it is through teaching organic gardening to middle school students in the Garden of Hope, sharing God's love through crafts and cooking with St. George's and Chef Jimmy's cooking class for kids or encouraging folks at ArtWalk to make signs of HOPE to share with someone who needs to know -- God Love's them no matter what and we can trust in Him for our future. As Jeremiah 29:11, says: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
More recently, Pastor Robin has been gathering Pastors to come together in unity to pray for our county. She hopes this will spark congregations to come together and pray as well.
In 2005, after visiting Christians in Peshawar, Pakistan, Pastor Robin birthed Bridges to Pakistan, a ministry to support the persecuted Christians in the Northwest Frontier Province as they serve and love their enemy--the Taliban. She has served in numerous congregations in Tyler, the Woodlands and Conroe and as a chaplain at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital. Prior to answering God's call to the priesthood, Robin worked at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in Houston in Strategic Planning, Marketing and media relations. She also served as a missioner in the third ward of Houston mentoring youth whose parents were on drugs.
Pastor Robin received her Masters of Divinity in 2006 at Seminary of the Southwest in Austin and her bachelors of Business Administration from University of North Texas in Denton in 1980.
Pastor Robin is dedicated to spreading the good news -- God loves you no matter what!

The Rev. Deacon Joseph Mills
God has called us to assist your rector, Pastor Robin, as deacons. The role of the rector is as shepherd to a congregation. The role of the deacon is like a sheepdog who assists Pastor Robin in serving Christ by teaching, preaching, and assisting the congregation. In addition the deacon's primary role is to model the Christian life for the congregation. This means that the deacon serves Christ by demonstrating Christian Love and Service in the world.
As a deacon I may call on the home-bound members of the congregation. I may bring communion to you if you are in Mainland Hospital or ill at home.
As a deacon I may go to teach and visit in local jails or prisons. I am teaching a college class in Earth Sciences for Alvin Community College at the Ramsey unit one afternoon each week. At that same unit I have been and will continue leading a 12-step class/group on a different afternoon. I am also teaching classes in astronomy, physics and geology at Alvin Community College. Astronomy has been a lifelong interest and hobby.
As a deacon, I am a member of the Galveston County CERT and Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) groups who assist professional first responders in emergency situations affecting Galveston County residents. Besides that it's a lot of fun to meet with other amateur radio operators and hobbyists.
As a deacon I will assist Pastor Robin liturgically in the worship services by reading the Gospel , leading the confession, giving the dismissal, and occasionally preaching.
I am looking forward to meeting each of you and learning how our lives at St George's can glorify God by continuing Jesus' work of meeting the needs of the world and preaching the Good News!
A little personal background information: I am a native Texan, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. I have lived with my wife, Deacon CarolAnn in the Houston area for the last 30 years. I teach physics, astronomy and geology for Alvin Community College. I have worked for a national laboratory and a variety of oil and gas companies as a geophysicist.
The Rev. Deacon Carol Ann Mills
Joe and I had come to the conclusion that our usefulness at Grace Episcopal in Alvin had ended, so we contacted the Archdeacon of the Diocese as to where we should go. Meanwhile Pastor Robin had been praying for a deacon. The Archdeacon suggested we call her and we came to St George's to interview. Since we had been praying for a place of welcome and Pastor Robin had been praying for help to grow the parish, the interview went smoothly. We clicked. It was simple, direct and clear that St George's was where the Holy Spirit wanted us to come and we are grateful for a chance to serve.
What does the Deacon do? A deacon brings the needs of the world to the church and says Help and the Deacon serves the Church under the leadership of the bishop. The bishop decides where we will be and can move us at any time. We are the evidence of the bishop's support of St George's and its growth. We look forward to meeting you and helping you develop your Christian ministry.
My ministry focus has always been senior saints in nursing homes and the frail elderly shut-in at home. I have been a librarian for all of my professional life working for a number of public libraries. I retired as Assistant Director of the Moore Memorial Public Library in Texas City. We have 2 living children who are living in Oregon and in Morocco, and 4 grandchildren plus another due in August.
