Meet our REctor
Jason Hamshaw, rector
Born in London, England, Jason grew up in one of the most ethnically and religiously diverse parts of the city. He grew up in a Christian household and began evangelism ministries at a young age, from the school yard to afterschool groups to talking to strangers on the street. He attended Oak Hill Theological College, in North London. After seminary, he responded to a call to serve as the Youth Minister at Prince George Church in Georgetown, South Carolina, where he met his wife Chelsea. Jason served there for 10 years. He was a curate at Old St. Andrew's Parish Church, in Charleston for two years before responded to the call to serve as the Rector of All Saints'.
Jason and his wife, Chelsea, serve in ministry together and love working as a team. They have 4 young boys, Ben, Mark, Simon, and John- as you can imagine, there is never a dull moment in the Hamshaw household!
Chelsea was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where her father served as a minister. Her family moved to Bakersfield, CA when she 9 years old. She attended Vanguard University where she studied Political Science and Theatre and is currently attending North Greenville University, where she is studying Christian Ministries.
In late 2008, Chelsea sensed a call to move to South Carolina, where she met Jason Hamshaw, then Youth Minister at Prince George Church in Georgetown. They were married in January of 2010. Chelsea currently volunteers leading the music for worship at All Saints' and serves in the church office. When she is not chasing her boys or working at the church, Chelsea enjoys studying theology, teaching scripture, reading (mostly British literature- lucky she married a Brit!), theatre, and eating out just a little too often.
