Our Rector, Rev. Jim Erwin
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I have been asked to share a few life facts with you and I promise to keep it short and (hopefully) sweet! I grew up in Savannah and Atlanta, GA, the oldest of three boys. I graduated from the University of Georgia and worked for 23 years in the advertising agency business. The final thirteen years was as president of my own firm in Charlotte, NC.
For years I was involved in outreach and educational ministries at parishes in South and North Carolina. Over time, I began to discern a call to ordained ministry. After a three year discernment process in the Diocese of North Carolina, I moved to NYC to attend General Theological Seminary where I graduated in 2009.
I moved to Riverside, CT to assume the position of Curate at St. Paul's. I was later promoted to Assistant Rector and have overseen the youth and outreach programs there among other duties.
My daughter Sydney is a recent graduate of the College of Charleston. She will be living with me while she pursues her career in the film and tv industry in NYC. My son Trippe is 16 and attends high school in Greenville, SC. He is an avid basketball player and visits us often. At 6'5", he hopes to play college ball. Gracie, our Welsh Terrier rounds out the family; she's actually the real boss in the family.
We are very excited to be coming to Christ Church and Warwick and look forward to meeting y'all and to learn your life stories.
Many blessings, Fr. Jim
