Bishop Curry has approved the Vestry’s request to call the Rev. Robert Davenport, Interim Rector of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Southern Pines, NC, to be our Interim Rector.  He will join the staff on October 12. Robert is a native of Virginia, the son of a priest, as is his wife, Lizzie, also the daughter of a priest. Robert has considerable experience as a full-time Rector, most recently at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Norfolk (2004-2013).

Robert has been the Interim Rector of Emmanuel Church in Southern Pines and has been a healing presence there. We see Robert as a pastor who will love the people, love and lead our talented staff, and help lead us into our future. Click here for the full text of James Moeser’s announcement.
