Dear Christ Church,
I am thankful to the Lord and to the vestry and search committee of Christ Church for the honor to serve as your next Rector. It is humbling to serve a church where John Wesley and George Whitefield were Rectors, and it is a special privilege to follow the faithful 28 year pastorate of Father Marc. I could not ask for more of a blessing. I am eager to be with you in worship, mission, catechesis and life together as a family of faith. I know the Lord has great plans for Christ Church Anglican, as he continues the good work that he began. My wife Missy and I and our children Madeline and Jack will all see you soon. We can’t wait! In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your prayers for us and the upcoming transition.
Rev. Dr. Craig Stephans, Rector
