Holy Trinity has called Christopher Wilkerson to be Assistant to the Rector beginning in June.
Christopher will graduate from the School of Theology, University of the South, Sewanee TN in May with a Master of Divinity degree, after which he and his family will relocate to the Clemson area. He will be ordained as a Transitional Deacon shortly after his arrival, and then will be ordained a Priest approximately six months later. His pastoral focus will be on Young Adult and Family Ministries.
Christopher holds a BS in Anthropology from Georgia Southern University and an MFA in English and Creative Writing from Southern Illinois University. Prior to attending Seminary he taught English at Spartanburg Community College.
A lifelong Episcopalian, Christopher is also a guitarist and songwriter who loves science fiction, poetry, theatre, and pop-culture (“I enjoy Hamlet and The Simpsons in about equal measure.”) He is married to Anne, a board-certified music therapist specializing in end-of-life care and bereavement, and a talented musician as well. They have two daughters, Emily (6) and Elena (4).
Please join us in welcoming the Wilkerson family to Holy Trinity!
