From all the saints at St. Michael’s (who are all sinners saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus), welcome to a biblical, liturgical, and traditional body of believers who worship Almighty God in Spirit and in Truth. We extend to you a warm invitation to join in our fellowship as we love God and love one another.
After the Holy Bible, St. Michael’s is grounded in the creeds and councils of the historic church, the traditional Book of Common Prayer, and the Articles of Religion.
The Rev. Richard L. Jones was born and raised in St. Louis, MO until moving to Tulsa in 1998. In 1984 Fr. Jones experienced a sovereign visitation by our Lord Jesus Christ which set him on a unique spiritual journey. After another dramatic and sovereign move of God on Dec. 14th 1995, he fully surrendered to Jesus Christ at a church service the next day. He was first ordained as a Minister in 1998, and in 2013 he was ordained to the Anglican Priesthood in the Province of Communio Christiana. Earlier, in 2007, he originally planted a new non-denomination church in Tulsa called The Uprising, which converted to the Anglican Way in 2012. In 2017 he was received into the Order of Saint John the Beloved, a 3rd order Franciscan monastic order. By 2018 Fr. Jones was assigned the role of Abbot of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma. In 2021 he was moved by the Holy Spirit to enter the Reformed Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Mid-America. He was installed as the Rector of Saint Michael’s Anglican Church in Broken Arrow on January 23, 2022 by the Most Rev. Ray R. Sutton, PhD, and is the fifth Rector of St. Michael’s following Fr. Michael Templin, Fr. Ed Fowler, Fr. Jack Bradberry, and founder Fr. John Pasco.
