The Rev. Evie Macway

Interim Pastor and Head of Staff

Email: evie_macway@stonechurch.org

Evie Macway was born in Portland, Oregon, and raised in Napa, California, when her Presbyterian pastor father and church organist mother moved there to begin a new church development.

 

She attended college at UC Davis, graduating in 1980. After graduating from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary in 1983, she and her husband, Dave moved back to the Bay Area, settling in Sunnyvale. Dave began graduate school and she received a call to serve as associate pastor at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church, where she was ordained. In the ensuing years Evie and Dave had four children and then moved back to Louisville, where Evie served a church for nine years.

 

Since returning to California in 2007, Evie served as pastor at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Santa Cruz for 10 years and then as a transitional pastor at Santa Teresa Hills Presbyterian Church in San Jose and First Presbyterian Church of Mountain View.

 

Dave and Evie have four adult daughters, two sons-in-law and five young grandchildren.

 

In addition to her work, Evie enjoys spending time with her family, lap swimming at the Y, running, sewing, knitting and gardening.

The Rev. Irene Pak Lee

Associate Pastor

(Irene is on sabbatical through October and will be reachable again by phone or email Nov. 1)

Irene Pak Lee's passion around ministry is grounded in the love of God and love of people. She believes the life and ministry of Jesus was and is an incredible way to demonstrate a life of welcome, inclusivity, love and grace for all people, and she seeks to demonstrate that as best as she can in her own life and teaching. Irene also believes the best kind of pastoral care and ministry comes around sharing a meal together, so anytime you want to grab food with her, she will be up for it!

She was born and raised in the wild west of Ogden, Utah, to Korean immigrant parents and is a lifelong Presbyterian. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Public Relations from Weber State University, where she minored in music, playing cello. 

 

Irene then went on to McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, where she received her Master of Divinity degree. She worked for the Presbyterian Church (USA) in Louisville, Kentucky, for a year in the Office of Racial Justice and Advocacy. She received her first pastoral call in 2008 at Daesung Korean Presbyterian Church in Sunnyvale, where she was the Associate Pastor for Christian Education and English Ministries. She was called to Stone Church In 2012.

Irene married Marion Lee at Stone Church in 2016. They are parents of Ezra and Eden. Irene loves to read, binge watch TV shows, go on walks, and sing and play music.
