The Reverend Tim Schenck


Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist

Hingham, Massachusetts

The Rev. Tim Schenck serves as rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, MA, on Boston’s South Shore. A parish priest for 21 years, he has also served parishes in Maryland and New York. Along with a monthly syndicated column, Tim is the author of five books full of humor and faith. Most recently, he wrote a free resource guide for Episcopal Church Foundation titled Hybrid Church: A Way Forward for Church Leaders. Active on social media, Tim is the creator of the wildly popular online devotion Lent Madness (think 32 saints in an NCAA-style bracket tournament). 


Tim graduated from Tufts University in Medford, MA, with a BA in Political Science in 1991, where he was also enrolled in Army ROTC. Trained as a tank platoon leader and paratrooper, Tim served in the Army Reserve prior to attending seminary. He received a Master of Divinity from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary in Evanston, IL, in 2000.


When not tending to his parish, drinking coffee, desperately seeking material for his In Good Faith column, or blogging at Clergy Confidential, you’ll likely find Tim spending time at the St. John’s Rectory with his wife Bryna and rescue dogs, Cooper and Daisy Duke. They have two sons in their early twenties.
