In his eleventh year as Rector, Father Michael remains excited by great growth at Hickory Neck–both in numbers and in spirit–and celebrates the emergence of new ministries and new space to accommodate those moving into our midst. Fr. Michael came to our parish by way of the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, Georgia, where he served as Canon for Young Adults and Communications for nearly three years. Prior to that, he served as Assistant to the Rector at Good Shepherd in Lexington, Kentucky. A fan of travel, basketball, and reading, Fr. Michael takes Friday as Sabbath in preparation of Sunday’s great celebration.
