Presiding Bishop
The Most Rev. Michael Curry

Bishop of Southwestern Virginia
The Rt. Rev. Mark Bourlakas

Rector
Fr. Paul is on sabbatical from August 15 until December 15, 2017.

The Rev. Dr. Paul S. Nancarrow came to Trinity in the fall of 2008. Before Trinity, he served churches in the dioceses of Minnesota, Tennessee, and Michigan. Paul has a PhD in theology from Vanderbilt University, where he worked in the areas of theology of nature and process theology. He is particularly interested in the relationship between religion and science and the question of cosmology, or how we can give an account of the world that can accommodate both material and spiritual realities. “The world is made of differences in relationship,” he says; “Science discovers this, and Genesis proclaims it. If that is so, then how do we human beings in the world join in God’s creative work by creating relationships out of our differences? That is what the church is all about.” Paul and Lee, his wife, live in the rectory on Trinity’s grounds. Paul has two adult children, Maggie and Aidan, who live in Minnesota.
