   Raised in Wichita, Kansas, Quinn's journey of education and service is a testament to a life deeply rooted in spirituality, community engagement, and a commitment to making a positive impact. Following graduation from the University of Kansas Honors program with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and a Minor in French, Quinn was called to serve for two years as a Lutheran (ELCA) missionary in Cameroon. There, he lived for two years teaching English as a foreign language and administering HIV/AIDS counseling and education.

   Upon returning to the United States, Quinn continued his studies at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California. As a part of his PLTS studies, Quinn spent an internship year as vicar of a bilingual congregation in Mexico City, Mexico. This role built upon Quinn’s time abroad in Cameroon and cemented his commitment to global outreach, environmental protection, and health education. Quinn received his Master of Divinity, but changed the course of his career when he moved to Oklahoma to help care for his ailing stepfather.

   While living in Oklahoma, Quinn obtained his certification to teach Chemistry, Biology, and English Language Arts. After exploring traditional high school education, Quinn’s dedication to mentorship, building connections, and creating a nurturing learning environment led him to accept a position with Putnam Heights Academy, an alternative public high school for non-traditional students. However, the call to ministry never vanished entirely from Quinn’s heart, and after meeting Pearl, now his wife, Quinn found a new home within the UCC and returned to ministry.

   Quinn and Pearl share their home with their cat Buster and their rescue ball python, Sven.  Quinn’s hobbies include cooking, oil painting, and SCUBA diving, and together he and Pearl enjoy the outdoors, games, and travel.
