Austin Spry is the incumbent of the Boundary Parish (Holy Trinity - Grand Forks, St. Jude's - Greenwood, and St. Mary's - Kettle Valley). His previous educational experience in agricultural economics and global resource systems has given him a keen sense of the church's role in informing our human relationship with Creation and of the threat climate change poses to human societies. Austin has many interests and passions, but these days caring for four children (five years old and younger) with his wife Ingrid makes raising humans his #1 occupation beside ordained ministry.
