The Episcopal Conference Center Year Round Staff
The Reverend Meaghan Brower, Director
Meaghan believes her path to ordained ministry started in the 8th grade when she attended ECC for the first time as a camper. Her experience of God and community at ECC led her to be involved in the church in other ways, including five years as the youth minister at Grace Church in Providence. Meaghan graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary, married Jonathan Brower and moved to Southern Pines, North Carolina. She served for four years as the Associate Rector of Emmanuel Church in Southern Pines. Meaghan and her husband decided to take some time off to travel and discern God's will for them in their future. She was delighted and surprised when the opportunity arose to return to ECC where she became the next director of the Episcopal Conference Center. She is thrilled to be back in Rhode Island and at ECC where she hopes to continue the work of bringing young people to God.
