Robin began ministry with the people of Christ and Grace in March 2018. Having experienced Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Roman Catholic churches growing up, she and her husband Paul fell in love with The Episcopal Church when they attended Church of the Holy Communion in Memphis, TN. After moving back home to Virginia, they raised their three children in Church of the Redeemer in Midlothian, and Robin answered God’s call to ordained ministry. She has served as Priest in Charge with the people of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Blackstone, VA, and as Associate Rector with the people of Christ Church in Glen Allen, VA. Robin has a BA in Chemistry from Catawba College, Salisbury, NC, received her Master of Divinity from Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA, and a certificate of Anglican Studies from Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, VA. Her joy in ministry is creating space through preaching, teaching, and mission where we connect the Gospel to our daily lives as we proclaim the love of God.
Claire began serving Christ and Grace in July, 1996 as a Lay Assistant. As life-long Episcopalian in the Diocese of Southern Virginia, Claire’s love for Christian Education and Pastoral Care developed when attending St. John’s Hopewell from 1979-1991 where she read and studied under the direction of David Bercaw, Rector. She furthered her studies through Presbyterian School of Christian Education and completed numerous workshops and courses offered within the diocese. She and her husband Gene reside in her family home in Dinwiddie County where she enjoys visits from her children/grandchildren and her porch swing.
