Celebrate the ordination of the Rev. David Hacker June 10May 17th, 2012 | Posted by in News
The Rev. David Hacker will be ordained to the priesthood by the Rt. Rev. James E. Waggoner, Jr., Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane, at Campbell Farm in Wapato, June 10 at 4 p.m. The service, and reception, are open to the public.
Hacker has been involved in a variety of ministries in Central Washington for many years. He served as the director of the Campbell Farm from 2001-2007. He was the Director of Congregational Relations for Faith Action Network. He has worked for Yakima County as the Housing First and VISTA Coordinator and he continues his involvement with Noah’s Ark Shelter in Wapato. He currently serves Christ Church in Zillah as Deacon and works with a number of ecumenical partners on the Yakama Indian Reservation. He also works part time with Central WA Progress which seeks to involve the diversity of the community in civic engagement.
Central to his ministry has always been the instruction that Jesus gives, “when you throw a party invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind.” This sign of the inclusive feast of God in which all are invited, is what he hopes to be able to offer now as he celebrates the Eucharist as priest.
Campbell Farm is a retreat and conference center, as well as a working farm, on the Yakima Indian Reservation. It is located at 2527 Campbell Rd. in Wapato, Wa.
