Meet Our New Rector

 

We Extend A Warm Welcome to The Rev. Nancee Cekuta

 

Dear Fellow Members of Holy Trinity:

Following a long and thorough search process, I am delighted to announce that your vestry has called The Rev. Nancee Ann Cekuta to serve as our next rector.

We look forward to welcoming her around the middle of August.

The Rev. Cekuta (Nan) comes to us from St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in North Augusta, SC.  Previously, she served as an associate and interim rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charlotte.  She is a graduate of the School of Theology at the University of the South (Sewanee) and entered the ordained ministry in 2015, following a successful business career in Atlanta.

We believe our new rector will help us move forward, building on the foundations of our recent past and proud traditions, in fulfilling our mission to be Christ to a world in need of redemption and grace. She has the kind of experience, wisdom, and calm assurance to help transition us to new growth; the kind of energy and creativity to bring new meaning to our motto, “Come in to Worship, Go out to Serve.”

Please join me in thanking the search committee for the diligent and excellent work they performed during this discernment process. George Harrison, Chair, along with Amy Beene, Harry Horrocks, J.R. Hustwit, Julie-Lee Jacobs, Dan Middleton, Sarah Moorman, Laura Reeves, Dane Reid and Johanna Thoma. The search committee unanimously brought Nan’s recommendation to the vestry and the vestry in turn unanimously voted to call her as our rector.  Join me also in thanking our associate rector, Edward Lowe, for his invaluable and ongoing guidance, leadership, and faithful service to us during this time of transition.

Sincerely,

 

Suzanne Pinson

Senior Warden
