Meet our Rector
Channing brings 20 years of ordained ministry to his position as our Rector. He originally grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and felt called to the ministry at age 16 through a youth program. He is very passionate about each person discovering a relationship with God which comes when we explore the important questions of life.
