The Rev. Stephen Sale
He, Him
Director of EACA Outreach Ministries, North Texas
St. Thomas Church
Dallas, Texas

I am a retired Naval Officer and an active priest and outreach coordinator with EACA Outreach Ministries, North Texas. I grew up in Texas, leaving for a year when we lived in Morocco while my father in Rabat. A cradle Episcopalian, I put off the call to ordained ministry and joined the U. S. Navy following graduation from the University of North Texas. I served for 31 years as an active-duty Naval Officer and six years as a senior civilian.
Throughout the 37 years that I served as a military leader and mentor, my focus was to function as a responsible steward to those I led and served. The lesson of serving Christ in all persons is a commitment that is both consistent with my baptismal covenant and with my oath to my country.
The call remained, and Margaret and I returned to Dallas in 2013 to allow me to resume a call that had been deferred for over 40 years. Attending the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas‘ Stanton Center for three years, and Perkins School of Theology at SMU, aided in my formation. I was ordained to the
diaconate in March of 2019 and as a priest in May of 2021. Ministries here in Dallas are focused on the Homeless and Hungry, and I work with The Gathering and The Bridge as well as serving with EACA Outreach Ministries.
