about billy

The Rev. Billy Tweedie joined Snowmass Chapel on June 1. Billy has spent the past ten years leading a small Episcopal church in Austin, TX, where he has cultivated a strong community vibe for locals and church-goers alike: think pickleball, live music, youth groups and gardening, and you begin to get a picture of his eclectic ministry.

Billy is well-versed in a variety of worship styles and brings a joyful presence to his sermons and all he does. His pastoral skills are evident and one of the things that I believe really make him a good fit for our community. Not to mention that he is an avid outdoorsman! Billy fly-fishes, hikes and skis; in fact he hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 2000 as part of his discernment process toward ordination (he and Coulter Burch will have plenty to talk about!).
